Adequately Defining the Amino Acid Requirements of Fish : The Case Example of Lysine

  title={Adequately Defining the Amino Acid Requirements of Fish : The Case Example of Lysine},
  author={Dominique P. Bureau and Pedro Miguel Martins Encarnaç{\~a}o},
A critical review of the literature highlights significant discrepancies in the estimates and modes of expression of amino acid requirements. Using lysine as a case example, this paper highlights some of these discrepancies and potential limitations of current approaches. Published estimates of lysine requirements for rainbow trout varied from 1.3 – 2.9 % of the diet and NRC (1993) estimated lysine requirement at 1.8% of the diet. Results from recent studies and detailed data analysis suggest… CONTINUE READING
