Dietary effect of varying linseed oil compositions on growth response, survival and polyunsaturated fatty acid levels in Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

The present study evaluated the impact of varying dietary linseed oil composition on growth, survival and tissue polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) profiles in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). Five iso-nitrogenious diets with varying linseed and sunflower oil concentrations were formulated and fish fed twice daily to for 3 months.
