Channel catfish do not require supplemental biotin in practical corn-soybean meal or corn-soybean meal-fishmeal diets for normal growth and pyruvate carboxylase activity. 31 Rainbow trout are highly sensitive to biotin deficiency in the diet. The fish on top was fed a nutritionally complete diet while the one on bottom received the same ration except deprived of biotin.
However, dietary sulfaguanidine (an antibiotic) and low water temperature each prolonged blood coagulation time in trout, which suggests that bacterial synthesis of vitamin K may have been involved. Fish meal and alfalfa meal are good sources of vitamin K. Vitamin K is added to fish feeds as a menadione salt: menadione sodium bisulfite or menadione dimethylpyrimidinal bisulfite; the latter is more heat stable during feed proceeding.
