Wax esters (WE) in copepods constitute huge natural marine lipid resources, which can contribute as future lipid source in formulated diets in aquaculture, and thereby reduce the pressure on use of marine resources at higher trophic levels. The present study was undertaken to investigate factors affecting WE digestibility, including production of bile and lipases in Atlantic salmon fed diets containing high proportions of oil derived from copepods. Individually tagged postsmolt Atlantic salmon…

Digestibility of Calanus finmarchicus wax esters in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) freshwater presmolts and seawater postsmolts maintained at constant water temperature

The effect of temperature and dietary fat level on tissue lipid composition in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) fed wax ester-rich oil from Calanus finmarchicus

The results are consistent with Atlantic salmon being able to incorporate both the FA and fatty alcohol components of THE AUTHORS into tissue lipids but, overall, the effects of environmental temperature on tissue Lipids were more pronounced in fish fed the CO diets than FO diets.

Marine wax ester digestion in salmonid fish: a review

Alternative marine resources from lower trophic levels could partly cover the rapidly increasing needs for marine proteins and oils in the future. The North Atlantic calanoid copepod, Calanus

Evaluation of Calanus finmarchicus copepod meal in practical diets for juvenile Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus)

The results indicate that growth and nutrient utilization efficiency are improved in Atlantic halibut fed diets supplemented with C. finmarchicus meal.

Utilization and metabolism of palmityl and oleoyl fatty acids and alcohols in caecal enterocytes of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)

The hypothesis tested was that the possible lower utilization of dietary FAlc by salmon enterocytes is at the level of uptake and that subsequent intracellular metabolism was identical to that of FA, and the hypothesis was generally proved.

Lipid digestibility and ultrastructural changes in the enterocytes of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus L.) fed linseed oil and soybean lecithin

It is suggested that endogenous phospholipid synthesis is insufficient to maintain lipoprotein synthesis in Arctic char when fed diets containing high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acid of total lipid, and that phospholIPids should be supplied with such diets.

Comparative effects of dietary Na+‐lactate on Arctic char, Salvelinus alpinus L., and Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L.

It is concluded that the retention time of diet in the stomach of char is significantly longer than that of salmon, which may increase the antibacterial action of lactate in the former, favouring the colonization of lactic-acid-tolerant bacteria in the intestinal tract.

Triacylglycerol-, wax ester- and sterol ester-hydrolases in midgut of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)

Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout of 1500 g showed similar lipolytic activity, while salmon smolts of 300 g showed a significantly lower activity, which could indicate that the activities in these two salmonids may display different enzyme biochemistry.

Changes in lipids during the development of Calanus finmarchicus s.l. from Copepodid I to adult

The total lipid and wax ester content as well as the fatty acid and alcohol composition of all copepodid stages and adults of Calanus finmarchicus s.l. were investigated at different locations in the

Geographical differences in marine feeding of Atlantic salmon post-smolts in Norwegian fjords

Results indicate that extensive feeding immediately after sea entrance may be more common for post-smolts in the northern and middle parts of Norway, than in the southern fjords, which may be due to spatial and temporal differences in prey availability within and between the different types of fjord systems.

Feed preferences in juvenile cod estimated by inert lanthanid markers – effects of moisture content in the feed

Results clearly indicate a higher intake of moist feed in juvenile cod, either due to a better palatability or to a higheravailability caused by a lower sinking rate of the moist feed.
