Dietary trace minerals must be supplied in adequate quantity to ensure the optimal growth and health of farmed aquatic species. The significance of trace mineral bioavailability has become more important as the aquaculture practice has gone under phenomenal intensification worldwide.

As a result, the bio-availability of trace minerals are being adversely affected by the presence of antagonistic factor such as phytic acid in plant protein.
