Abstract

The vitamin C requirements of many of the species raised in the grow-out stage are now well known and vary from species to species, but also depend on the quality of the environment and the physiological state of the fish. By contrast, there is only a limited number of reports on the physiological needs of the very earliest stages of a fish’s life, from the hatching embryo to the complete weaning with artificial feed. Signs of deficiency, such as serious spinal deformities and consequent retardation of growth, have also been reported in young fish.
