The present experiment was carried out to investigate the effects of different levels of dietary lactoferrin (LF) on growth performance, physiological status, iron absorption and innate immune response of juvenile Siberian sturgeon Acipenser baeri. Fish were fed with six different rations including 0, 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600 mg LF kg(-1) diet for 8 weeks. At the end of the experiment, samples were collected for estimating the physiological and immunological parameters. Dietary LF did not… CONTINUE READING
