High-glucose feeding of gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) larvae: Effects on molecular and metabolic pathways

Carnivorous fish, such as rainbow trout and gilthead seabream exhibit a poor utilization of dietary carbohydrates as energy substrates. The concept of nutritional programming raises the possibility of tailoring specific metabolic pathways or functions in fish, for example to improve the use of dietary carbohydrates and promote the development of cereal based-diets for a more sustainable aquaculture.
