The present work provides information concerning the immunostimulatory activity of Ergosan, an algal based product, injected intraperitoneally in the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Ergosan is composed of 0.002% unspecified plant extract, 1% alginic acid from Laminaria digitata, and 98.998% algal based carrier.
