The value of Phaffia yeast as a feed ingredient for salmonid fish

Aquaculture 124(1-4): 193-200
The value of Phaffia yeast as a feed ingredient for salmonid fish
The yeast Phaffia rhodozyma has been developed as a natural source of astaxanthin and other nutrients for use as an ingredient in feeds for salmonid fish and other aquatic species being produced by aquaculture. This yeast has been shown to be a good source of nutritionally important substances that are characteristic of yeast in general (protein, lipids, vitamins, etc.), and it is also a source of astaxanthin. Research has indicated that astaxanthin is of importance in the nutrition of salmonid fish and certain other aquatic species, and that this carotenoid must be obtained by salmonids from dietary sources since they cannot biosynthesize this substance.
