Abstract
In a standard aquaculture practice, smolts are transferred to ocean net pens without sufficient time period for osmotic adaptation, which results in significant losses to the farmer. In addition to high and unpredictable mortality rates, smolts are not able to grow optimally during their first 40-60 days in seawater. We are proposing to supplement salmon smolt feed with ARA, which may help in smoltification and alleviate the osmotic stress associated with the transfer to seawater.
