Alltech/KSU Collaboration Study

The research involved the first evaluation of largemouth bass diets entirely on plant proteins and compared methods of providing needed fatty acids. The plant protein diets were supplemented with either fish oil (gold standard for EPA and DHA), a flaxseed oil (which contains linolenic acid as a precursor to EPA and DHA) or an algae product produced by Alltech which contains high levels of DHA. The study showed that the algal lipids performed as well as fish oil.
