Phytates are the primary source of phosphorus in animal feeds of plant origin; however, this phytate phosphorus (PP) is only available to growing fish provided it is released from the phytate molecule as inorganic orthophosphate. Two experiments were conducted to compare phytase activity in the intestinal brush border membrane of carnivorous hybrid striped bass Morone chrysops × M. saxatilis, omnivorous tilapia Oreochromis niloticus × O. aureus and omnivorous koi Cyprinus carpio, and to… CONTINUE READING
