Ascorbic Acid In Aquatic Organisms: Status and Perspectives by Konrad Dabrowski

By Konrad Dabrowski

we're simply starting to observe the significance of nutrition C within the well-being of normal and man-made ecosystems. Synthesis of ascorbic acid is definitely understood, yet algae because the simply resource of ascorbate within the aquatic meals pyramid has no longer been explored. there's an increasing box of the tradition of aquatic organisms that call for formulated feeds to top meet their requisites for healthiness, development, and copy. With over a hundred species now cultured for human intake, the query arises to whether now we have trustworthy info for the nutritional wishes for diet C for even a small percent of those organisms.

A finished method of the function of diet C on the mobile point in addition to within the aquatic nutrients chains, this booklet discusses progress and copy, ailment resistance, and toxicology of aquatic organisms.

Ascorbic Acid in Aquatic Organisms was once written because the offshoot of a unique consultation on aquatic organisms and sensible aquaculture on the 1998 international Aquaculture Society (WAS) assembly.

This booklet stories the examine already to be had and identifies new instructions for study. it's a precise mix of excellent meals learn, ecology, and functional aquaculture (for example brine shrimp enrichment). This interdisciplinary quantity will entice marine fish culturists, aquatic biologists, comparative and evolutionary mobile physiologists, and environmental toxicologists.
