Tilapia tend to be one of the more common fish raised in aquaculture systems, which prompts interest in improving production practices.
Throughout the year, we’ve heard from researchers looking to improve fish response to cold temperatures by adding DHA to the diet and others adding peppermint essential oil to fish feed in an attempt to improve fish survival when facing a disease challenge.
In Egypt, tilapia received supplemental sodium butyrate to improve growth and feed utilization along with boosting fish growth.
While in Brazil, fish saw their diets amended with supplemental vegetable choline. Scientists explored the feed ingredients as a way to support fish performance and track the interaction between antioxidant/oxidant status and fish growth.
