Effects of dietary fatty acid enrichment on survival, growth, and salinity-stress-test performance of inland silversides
Date of Original Version
Larvae of inland silversides (Menidia be-ryllina) reared on three dietary levels of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) (low HUFA, medium HUFA, and high HUFA) showed no differences in survival or growth during a 3-week feeding trial and no differences in survival during a salinity stress test at 75%. Inland silversides therefore appear to have dietary needs for (n-3) HUFA that are more like those of freshwater fish than marine fish, even though they are found in marine environments. © 1993 by the American Fisheries Society.
