Impact of smolt production strategy on vertebral growth and mineralisation during smoltification and the early seawater phase in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar, L.)

Abstract: This study investigates the effect of different smolt production strategies on vertebral morphology (radiology), composition (mineral content) and mechanical strength (load-deformation testing) in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). Rapid-growing underyearling (0+) smolt were compared with slower-growing yearling (1+) smolt and a reference group of wild smolt (w). The underyearling and yearling smolt were transferred to seawater in October 2002 and May 2003, respectively. The underyearling smolt were reared under c… Show more

“…This is especially important to prevent deformity during the early growth period, as a high protein deposition is important for the growth of the skeleton, comprised of collagen fibres (Rungruangsak-Torrissen et al, unpublished). Moreover, Fjelldal et al (2007a) found that the vertebral body of the Atlantic salmon post-smolts (12 weeks after seawater transfer) with higher mineral concentration, indicating higher mechanical strength (Fjelldal et al 2006), had less compressed morphology than those with lower mineral concentration. Unfortunately, the vertebral protein concentration, vertebral protein turnover rate and fillet composition (P/L ratio) of these fish were not analyzed in Fjelldal et al (2007a).…”

“…The samples were kept frozen at -80°C for later determinations of quality and capacity for protein synthesis in the white muscle (concentrations of RNA and protein, and RNA/protein ratio; Carter et al 1993) and oocyte maturation rate (trypsin-like specific activity, concentrations of RNA and protein, and RNA/protein ratio), as reported in Rungruangsak-Torrissen (2007) and Rungruangsak-Torrissen and Fosseidengen (2007). The experiment was a co-operative project where vertebral growth ) and endocrine secretion (Nordgarden et al 2006) were also studied. Experiment 2: photoperiod and vaccine effects in outdoor cages…”

“…Abnormalities in some fish species are reduced with farming practices such as the implementation of appropriate diets and optimized environmental condition (Fjelldal et al, 2005(Fjelldal et al, , 2006Helland et al, 2009;Haga et al, 2011).…”
