Abstract This experiment examined and compared the effects of a highly purified immune modulating β-1,3/1,6-glucan product (BG) and of a putative receptor blocking, mannan oligosaccharide rich product (MOS) in Atlantic salmon fed extruded diets containing extracted soybean meal (SBM) or a combination of SBM and extracted sunflower meal (SFM). The BG and MOS products were derived from the cell walls of baker's yeast. A control diet was based on LT-fish meal (FM) and contained no plant protein. Two basic experimental diets were formulated with 32% SBM (FM + S) or with 14% SBM + 14% SFM (FM + SS). Following extrusion, four FM + S batches were supplemented with 500 ...
