The importance of algae, chitin and laurate that are widely ingested by a variety of wild fish was confirmed as feed supplement in cultured fish. The substance was supplemented to the diets of ayu, red seabream and black seabream at the same level found in the stomach content of wild fish. The dietary supplements commonly improved physiological condition such as acceleration of lipolysis activity and protein assimilation, depression of adipocytes, resistance to air-dipping, and activation of liver function, without depression of growth.
