Fish nutrition can be the deciding factor between a robust and healthy farmed fish population and low aquaculture production. In an age where chemicals and antibiotics are under greater scrutiny than ever, a strong understanding of the role of nutrients and feed additives is essential in the aquaculture industry.

Dietary Nutrients, Additives, and Fish Health is a comprehensive review of dietary nutrients, antinutritional factors and toxins, and non–nutrient dietary additives, as well as their effects on fish performance, immune system function, and overall health.

The book opens with an overview of fish immune systems and health. Subsequent chapters delve into proteins and amino acids, lipids and fatty acids, carbohydrates, beta glucans, vitamins, minerals, antinutrients, mycotoxins, nucleotides, prebiotics, probiotics, organic acids and their salts, and plant extracts and their impacts on fish health, growth, and development. The text concludes with a chapter on feeding practices.

Chapter contributions by leaders in aquaculture, Dietary Nutrients, Additives, and Fish Health will be an invaluable resource to graduate students, researchers, and professionals alike.

Chapters organized in a user–friendly format by nutrients, antinutrients, and additives.

Provides an overview of fish immune systems and health, as well as information on feeding practices.
