Response of juvenile red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) to practical diets supplemented with medium chain triglycerides

  title={Response of juvenile red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) to practical diets supplemented with medium chain triglycerides},
  author={Donald Allen Davis and Juan Pablo Lazo and Connie R. Arnold},
  journal={Fish Physiology and Biochemistry},
Medium chain triglycerides (MCT), mostly C6–C12, are physiologically active compounds which are readily absorbed, transported and appear to be preferentially utilized as an energy source but are not deposited in lipid stores in a variety of terrestrial animals. Consequently, the incorporation of MCT in feeds may allow the utilization of higher levels of lipids, possibly increasing protein sparing, without affecting the proximate composition of the fish. To evaluate the response of red drum to… CONTINUE READING
