Effects of phosphate and phytase supplementation on phytate degradation in rainbow
trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss W.) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)
Phytic acid and its salts are primary storage form of phosphorus in plant seeds and feed raw materials from plant seeds. When fishmeal is replaced by plant protein they carry high amounts of these substances. Fish digestive tract lacks of enzymes to catalyse these substances but some species as Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout can digest it to a certain extent depending on different variables.
A group of scientists including the Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre investigated the single and interactive effects of mineral phosphorus and Aspergillus oryzae6-phytase supplements on the disappearance of phytic acid and its lower inositol phosphate isomers and related phosphorous digestibility effects in Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout. The study compared the breakdown products of phytic acid and faecal appearance of specific lower inositol phosphates between two fish species reared in their specific environments using the same diet.
Results showed differences and similarities between both fish species. The intrinsic phytic acid degradation of Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout seems to be similar and generally relatively low, but phytase effects were much higher in rainbow trout than Atlantic salmon. Besides that, supplementation of phosphorus decreased phytase efficacy in Atlantic salmon.

Dietary fat content decreased the thermal resilience of barramundi
Episodic extreme temperatures are becoming more frequent which has a great impact on cultured species. Some studies showed that dietary manipulation can improve fish tolerances to high temperatures.
A group of scientists studied whether dietary fat content influences the thermal tolerance and thermal sensitivity of swimming performance and metabolism of juvenile barramundi (Lates
calcarifer). They used 2 commercial diets sourced by Ridley Aqua-feeds that differed in fat content, 10% and 20% crude fat.
Results showed that feeding fish a high fat diet resulted in heavier fish, but a reduced tolerance to extreme water temperatures. Scientist suggest that while a high fat diet increases juvenile barramundi growth, it does not benefit physiological performance across a range of relevant water temperatures.
Coping with climatic extremes: Dietary fat content decreased the thermal resilience of barramundi (Lates calcarifer)
