From: Impact of three commercial feed formulations on farmed gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata, L.) metabolism as inferred from liver and blood serum proteomics

  Feed A Feed B Feed C
IW (g) 268.54 ± 27.04 294.82 ± 28.05 276.61 ± 46.14
FW (g) 376.43 ± 45.09a 416.01 ± 47.65b 373.17 ± 55.28a
AWG (g) 107.89 ± 7.71b 121.19 ± 5.17a 96.56 ± 7.21b
LSI (%) 1.00 ± 0.17a 0.86 ± 0.11b 0.96 ± 0.11a
  1. Values are reported as means ± S.E. (number of fish analyzed n = 45/feed for IW, FW, and AWG; n = 9/feed for LSI); a, b, and c indicate statistically different values (p < 0.05, Student's t-test). IW: initial weight; FW: final weight; AWG: average weight gain; LSI: liver somatic index.
