A 28-day feeding trial was carried out to characterise intestinal epithelial cell (IEC) turnover in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) post-smolts in seawater. Four groups of fish raised at two temperatures of 8°C or 12°C and fed two different diets were investigated. The diets included a reference maize gluten and fishmeal-based diet (FM) and an experimental(More)
Soyabean meal (SBM)-induced enteritis in the distal intestine of the teleost Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) and other salmonids may be considered a model for diet-related mucosal disorders in other animals and man. The role of the intestinal microbiota in its pathogenesis was explored. Compared to diets containing fishmeal (FM) as the sole protein source,(More)
BACKGROUND Use of plant ingredients in aquaculture feeds is impeded by high contents of antinutritional factors such as saponins, which may cause various pharmacological and biological effects. In this study, transcriptome changes were analyzed using a 21 k oligonucleotide microarray and qPCR in the distal intestine of Atlantic salmon fed diets based on(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was undertaken to gain knowledge on the role of bile components and lecithin on development of aberrations in digestive functions which seemingly have increased in Atlantic salmon in parallel with the increased use of plant ingredients in fish feed. Post smolt Atlantic salmon were fed for 77 days one of three basal diets: a high(More)
