Title: Effects of dietary histidine and plant lipids on the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) health status following transfer to seawater


Name: Inês Carvalho


With the aquaculture expansion, there is great urgency in reducing the industry’s dependence on finite-marine ingredients, such as fish oil. However, plant lipid-based diets might markedly deviate from fish natural feeding habits and negatively impact their health. In the particular case of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), this issue acquires major relevance during the seawater transfer, a challenging production moment often associated with great losses. To improve the overall fish health, supplementing diets with immuno-modulators, such as certain amino acids, is becoming a common approach. 
The aim of this study was to investigate whether dietary lipid source and histidine supplementation could influence the non-specific immune response and antioxidant system in Atlantic salmon after seawater transfer.
