Effects of different dietary fatty acids profiles on the growth performance and body composition of juvenile tench (Tinca tinca (L.))

Effects of different dietary fatty acids profiles on the growth performance and body composition... Juvenile tench (initial weight of about 57 g) were fed feed supplemented with fish oil (group FO), linseed oil (group LO), peanut oil (group PO), or rapeseed oil (group RO) containing 47% protein and 12% fat for 55 days. The inclusion of the tested oils was 50 g kg−1 (42% total crude lipids in diets). No significant differences were noted in the fish growth performance. The proximate composition of the whole fish bodies and the viscera (water, protein, fat, ash) was similar in all the dietary treatments (P > 0.05). Differences were noted only with regard to the ash content of the fillets (P < 0.05). The analysis of the fatty acids profiles of tench (whole fish) indicated there were significant differences in the total content of monoenoic and polyenoic (PUFA) acids. Significant differences were also noted with regard to n-3 PUFA and n-6 PUFA. Consequently, the ratio of n-3/n-6 acids ranged from 1.6 (group PO) to 2.08 (group LO; P < 0.05). The feed applied was not confirmed to have had an impact on the fatty acids profile of the tench fillets. There was a statistically significant intergroup difference in the content of saturated fatty acids (SFA) in tench viscera. In the fish fed vegetable oils supplemented diets, the level of SFA was lower (P < 0.05). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries Springer Journals
