|Abstract||The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of dietary lipid classes (phospholipid vs. neutral lipid) and level of n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) on growth, survival and digestive enzymatic activity in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) larvae. Larvae were fed enriched rotifers from mouth opening and were weaned to formulated diets during a co-feeding period lasting from 17 days post hatch (dph) to 24 dph. Larvae were fed exclusively compound diets from 24 dph until the end of the experiment. Three isoproteic and isolipidic compound diets with gradually decreasing levels of DHA and EPA in the dietary phospholipid fraction (diet PL3 >PL1 >NL1) and increasing levels of total dietary neutral lipids (PL3 |
