27 It has been known for almost 25 years now that inclusion of intact phospholipids in the diet could 28 improve culture performance of various freshwater and marine fish species. The primary 29 beneficial effect was improved growth in both larvae and early juveniles, but also increased 30 survival rates and decreased incidence of malformation in larvae,(More)
A factorial, two-way, experimental design was used for this 10-week nutritional trial, aiming to elucidate the interactive effects of decreasing dietary protein:lipid level and substitution of fish oil (FO) with rapeseed oil (RO) on tissue fatty acid (FA) composition and metabolism of large Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) reared at high water temperatures(More)
The health benefits of seafood are well documented and based on the unique supply of n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA). Aquaculture now contributes about 50 % of food-grade seafood globally and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is a rich source of n-3 HUFA. However, salmon and other oily fish can accumulate lipophilic persistent organic pollutants(More)
A spatially explicit coupled hydrodynamic-mass transport model system was used to simulate dispersal of particulate organic matter from Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) farming in central Norway. Model setups of 32m horizontal resolution were run for periods of up to 650 days for 3 sites of different oceanographic characteristics: one fjord location, one(More)
An experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of temperature, feed fat content and dietary oil source on growth and nutrient utilisation of Atlantic salmon parr (f 19 g). The fish were reared in freshwater at 2 or 8 jC for 6 months at light/dark cycles of 12 h:12 h. Each of four feeds was provided to triplicate groups of fish at each temperature.(More)
