Nutritional programming through broodstock diets to improve utilization of very low fishmeal and fish oil diets in gilthead sea bream

The complete removal of fishmeal (FM) and fish oil (FO) is required to promote the sustainable development of aquaculture and for that, fast growing high quality fish that are fed without FM and FO are necessary. Early nutritional programming may allow the production of fish better adapted to utilize diets with vegetable meals (VM) and oils (VO).

The main objective of this study was to research in the potential value of fatty acids as modulators of early nutritional programming in marine fish for a better utilisation of VO/VM.
