This study evaluated a commercially available prebiotics and probiotics under conditions simulating commercial production in hybrid catfish. Results showed that the various dietary treatments did not have any significant effects on processing characteristics or composition.

Lab studies with channel catfish and rainbow trout have found that phytogenic feed additives like essential oils can help improve weight gain, feed conversion and immunity to disease.
Essential oils are linked to livestock performance gains. In research with channel catfish, inclusion resulted in greater feed consumption and weight gain.
