Research—Carotenoids in Crustacean Diets


From Abstract: This review updates the recent progress in the understanding of dietary carotenoid utilization and storage, and the combined effects of diet, genetics and environment on crustacean pigmentation.  In addition, the range of other physiological benefits this class of molecules brings to these animals is summarized.  These include improvements in survival, growth, reproductive capacity, disease resistance and stress resistance.
