Three experimental diets of thiamine supplemented (TA), non-supplemented (NTA) anchovy-based moist pellets and mackerel-based moist pellets (MM) were fed to oneyear- old amberjack for 20 weeks. Thiamine supplementation to anchovy pellets prevented thiamine deficiency disease observed in NTA, such as reduced levels of growth performance, plasma cholesterol and total protein, muscle fat content and disease-resistance against Streptococcus dysgalactiase. Furthermore, TA fish achieved the same level of growth performance, disease-resistance and meat quality as the general feed observed in MM.
