Abstract The Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii peelii), an iconic Australian freshwater fish, is subject to a small but growing aquaculture sector in Australia. Optimal larviculture techniques for this species have yet to be established, particularly with regard to the nutritional quality of starter diets. As such, optimisation of current Murray cod hatchery practices and feeding regimes is essential to maximize the production of high quality larvae and expand commercial aquaculture prospects. T...

Abstract Tamoxifen (TAM) is an antiestrogenic agent and can enter the aquatic environment in wastewater. It has been reported that TAM can induce hepatic steatosis in vertebrates, however, the effects of TAM exposure on lipid metabolism of hepatopancreas in crustaceans remains unclear. In this study, four TAM concentrations (0, 6.7, 13.4 and 20 μg g−1 crab body weight) were injected into the swimming-leg of swimming crabs Portunus trituberculatus, as a means of evaluating the effects of TAM on t...

ABSTRACTThe health benefits of fish oil, and its omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid content, have attracted much scientific attention in the last four decades. Fish oils that contain higher amounts of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5n-3) than docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6n-3), in a distinctive ratio of 18/12, are typically the most abundantly available and are commonly studied. Although the two fatty acids have traditionally been considered together, as though they were one entity, ...

A more efficient utilisation of marine-derived sources of dietary n -3 long-chain PUFA ( n -3 LC PUFA) in cultured Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar L.) could be achieved by nutritional strategies that maximise endogenous n -3 LC PUFA synthesis. The objective of the present study was to quantify the extent of n -3 LC PUFA biosynthesis and the resultant effect on fillet nutritional quality in large fish. Four diets were manufactured, providing altered levels of dietary n -3 substrate, namely, 18 : 3 ...

This study aimed to determine the nutritional composition, perceived quality and palatability of nine Australian seaweeds (wild-harvested species not yet exploited for human consumption; Laurencia filiformis, Codium galeatum, Cystophora polycystidea, Cystophora torulosa, Phyllotricha decipiens, Durvillaea potatorum, Hormosira banksii, Phyllospora comosa, Ecklonia radiata), and compare them to four of the commonest commercially available species (Pyropia tenera, Sargassum fusiforme, Saccharina an...

Abstract A common strategy for aquafeed manufacturers has been the utilisation of relatively large amounts of terrestrial, both animal and plant, oil sources to produce diets with a high energy content. The provision of high fat diets is aimed at promoting the utilisation of energy from lipid, thus increasing the amount of dietary protein used for tissue synthesis. However, in recent years the cost of marine sourced dietary lipids has risen, at the same time, farming operations are under increas...

Abstract There is a growing trend of ‘replacing’ long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 LC PUFA) rich oils with C18 shorter-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid rich oils in Atlantic salmon aquafeed formulations. n-3 LC PUFA, including 20:5n-3 and 22:6n-3, play contrasting physiological roles and are metabolised differently in comparison to C18 PUFA. Accordingly, the present study recorded the effect of replacing n-3 LC PUFA rich dietary fish oil with C18 n-3 PUFA rich camelina o...
