Teleost fish are able to adjust their energy intake when fed on pure macronutrient sources, although the exact mechanisms regulating macronutrient selection remain unknown. Since cholecystokinin (CCK) has been reported to modify macronutrient selection patterns in mammals, we explored the effect of CCK administered orally to European sea bass on the selection of separately encapsulated macronutrients. CCK doses of 0.05, 0.15 and 0.25 mg/kg BW administered in gelatine capsules for 5 consecutive… CONTINUE READING
