Abstract As a potential method for improving the health and growth of Atlantic salmon, dietary supplements of the prebiotics mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), fructooligosaccharide (FOS) in the form of inulin and galactooligosaccharide (GOS) were assessed in a 4-month trial. The prebiotics were added at a level of 10 g kg− 1 to a fish meal-based control diet and each diet was fed to triplicate groups of 200 g salmon in tanks supplied with salt water. Feed intake, growth, digestibility, body composition and routine oxygen consumption of the fish were monitored, as well as the non-specific immune system. The fish were healthy and no mortality occurred. There were no tr...
