Effects of dietary taurine on tissue taurine and free amino acid levels of the chum salmon, Oncorhynchus keta, reared in freshwater and seawater environments



Effects of dietary taurine on tissue taurine and free amino acid levels of the chum salmon, Oncorhynchus keta, reared in freshwater and seawater environments



Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. A, Comparative Physiology 89(3): 437-442



Young chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) were fed on basal and taurine-supplemented diets for 30 days in freshwater (FW) and for 25 days in seawater (SW). Taurine, major free amino acids (FAA) and non-protein nitrogen (NPN) were estimated in different tissues. Tissue taurine was greater when fish were fed on the taurine-supplemented diets. FAA in the tissues differed little between fish fed on the basal and taurine-supplemented diets and also between the FW and SW fish.
