Camelina as Feed -

Evaluation of the impact of camelina oil-containing diets on the expression of genes involved in the innate anti-viral immune response in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) – M. Booman, Q. Xu, and M. L. Rise – Fish and Shellfish Immunology 2014

Summary: This study aims to investigate the effect of the replacement of dietary fish oil with oil from Camelina sativa on the immune response of Atlantic cod, as measured by the gene expression in spleen. In conclusion, replacement of up to 80% of fish oil with camelina oil in Atlantic cod diets does not have a strong effect on basal spleen gene expression. Atlantic cod fed on camelina oil-containing diets are capable of mounting a strong anti-viral immune response, which is comparable to that in cod fed with a fish oil diet.
