The results from the trials performed during 2007 for seabass indicated that the species is more sensitive to fishmeal/fishoil replacement than Gilthead seabream. In the treatments where FM was providing 35% of the protein, daily growth rate and food conversion were negatively affected compared to a control diet containing 65% FM protein. It was concluded that 40% FM protein was the main focus for the formulations of the 2008 program.
