The effect of dietary taurine was investigated on reproductive performance in yellowtail Seriola quinqueradiata. Two-year-old fish of average body weight 6.1kg were fed on diets containing three levels of taurine (T-0, T-0.5 or T-1.0%) for 5 months prior to spawning. For spawning investigations, fish were induced to maturity by human chorionic gonadotrop in injection (600 IU/kg-fish) and artificially inseminated. Oocyte growth improved significantly (P<0.05) with the increase of dietary taurine… CONTINUE READING
