Journal of Aquaculture Research and Development publishing excellent research on aquaculture


Journal of Aquaculture Research and Development has recently published article entitled “Effects of Dietary Zinc Amino Acid Complex and Zinc Sulfate on Growth Performance, Digestive Enzyme Activity and Immune Response in Asian Seabass (Lates calcarifer)”  by Kanokwan Sansuwan et al. which is trending in the Journal of Aquaculture Research and Development

Research on essential mineral zinc required for the development of seabass done by the research group Kanokwan Sansuwan, El-Orapint Jintasataporn and Srinoy Chumkam underwent peer-review by professional reviewers and high profiled editor with lots of revisions and underwent for final production. Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) is a commercially important fish species for aquaculture in Thailand and Southeast Asia. It is a fast growing fish and can grow well in marine, brackish or freshwater. It fetches a high market price due to its delicatelyflavoured white meat. Organic minerals are important trace mineral sources because they protect trace elements from forming insoluble complexes in the digestive tract and facilitates transport across the intestinal mucosa.

This study was designed to evaluate the effects of different zinc forms, including organic zinc (zinc amino acid complex) and inorganic zinc (zinc sulfate) as feed additives in diets on in vitro protein digestibility, growth performance, feed utilization, digestive enzyme activity, immune response and muscle quality of Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer). The results suggest that supplemental dietary ZnAA enhances immune responses for Asian seabass. Dietary ZnSO4 supplementation improved digestive enzyme activities. However, there were no significant differences in the growth performance, feed utilization and muscle quality of dietary zinc sources from either ZnSO4 or ZnAA when the diets contained a high level of zinc from 45% animal protein and high energy from 18% lipid.
