Summary: 

The Soy-in-Aquaculture Managed Research Program is working to determine the chemicals in soybean meal that can limit the greater use of soy meal in feeds for varied aquaculture species. Initial work with the salmonid industry found problems related to soy lectins and trypsin inhibitors, but determined benefits from saponins and isoflavones.
