Scholarcy highlights

  • The present study investigated the distribution of α-tocopherol in fillets of turbot and Atlantic halibut
  • Turbot were fed the diets for 24 weeks, while Atlantic halibut were fed for 20 weeks prior to slaughter
  • At the end of the feeding periods fish had reached a final weight of around 1 kg
  • The average concentrations of α-tocopherol incorporated in turbot and Atlantic halibut increased with increasing levels of α-tocopheryl acetate in the diet
  • This study may help scientists in their choice of sampling position, when investigating if α-tocopheryl acetate supplementation resulted in successful α-tocopherol incorporation
