Fatty acid metabolism in the freshwater fish Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii
peelii) deduced by the wholebody fatty acid balance method.
Digestibility and amino acid availability of three protein-rich ingredient-incorporated diets by Murray cod Maccullochella peelii

Effects of dietary oil source on growth and fillet fatty acid composition of Murray cod, Maccullochella peelii

Two other endemic species, the endangered Mary River Turtle (Elusor macrurus) and the endangered Mary River Cod (Maccullochella peelii
mariensis), figured as anti-dam symbols, but not as prominently.
The majority of the fish (identified as Maccullochella peelii
n=22 and Macquaria ambigua n=2) were caught in freshwater environments during the warm season, and had grown to an age and size indicative of sexual maturity.
For example, retention of 20:4n-6 was found to occur in Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii
peelii) and trout cod (Maccullochella macquariensis; Gunasekera et al., 1999), Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis; Mourente and Vazquez, 1996), and spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor; Tveiten et al., 2004); this PUFA was also used less rapidly than the total lipid for the rockfish embryos in this study.
They are vital to the successful recruitment of native freshwater fish including golden perch (Macquaria ambigua Richardson), silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus Mitchell) and Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii
Mitchell) that depend on them for food from shortly after hatching until they are large enough to switch to other prey.
Similarly, in previous studies, the use of different vegetable lipid sources did not affect the growth performance of several other species, such as the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus (Ng et al., 2013), panga Pangasius hypophthalmus (Asdari et al., 2011), Murray cod Maccullochella peelii
peelii (Turchini et al., 2011) and Florida pompano Trachinotus carolinus (Rombenso et al., 2016).
Similar results were also observed in some fish, for example, the Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii
) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) expressed negative growth responses when fed diets with high BM levels (Abery et al.
