Summary Shrimp performed equally well on diets containing 16% fish meal (FM) or 8% fish meal supplemented with AQUAVI® Met-Met (0.03-0.10%). Retention efficiencies of protein and amino acids improved significantly with the supplementation of AQUAVI® Met-Met in low FM diets. In addition, shrimp fed the low FM diet supplemented with 0.1% AQUAVI® Met-Met showed better retention effici...
