Taurine: Critical Supplement for Marine Fish Feed
Category Aquaculture Cobia Drum Flounder Freshwater Pompano Saltwater Sea Bass Sea Bream Seriola Tilapia Trout
As marine ingredient levels are reduced in aquafeed, supplementation with low levels of taurine may be required to optimize production. Taurine may not only improve growth and performance, but also is required to reduce nutritional diseases such as green liver disease and low hematocrit levels in some fish. Taurine is authorized for fish feed in all species in the European Union and China, but not the United States.
