A novel approach to introduce nutrients into the fish egg; the effect of egg taurine on first feeding gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) performance

A potential key ingredient in broodstock and larval nutrition is the beta amino sulfonic acid; taurine.This study investigated a novel application of electroporation-based methodology to introduce nutrients,

such as taurine, into fertilized fish eggs with the aim of improving larval performance.
The study demonstrated the potential of electroporation as a novel high throughput approach to introduce taurine and/or other critical nutrients into the developing eggs and a potential alternative to costly broodstock dietary supplementation.
