This study investigated the effects of diets substituted with different levels (0, 5, 10, and 20%) of flounder skin meal (FSM) on the nutritional composition of black rockfish Sebastes schlegeli. Fish (10.05 ± 0.44 g) were fed to apparent satiation twice daily for 8 weeks. Adding FSM decreased crude lipid levels and increased crude protein and ash. The abundant fatty acids in the FSM-added group were C16:0, C18:1-cis (n9), and C22:6n-3. The major amino acids in the samples were glutamic acid,

Six free sugars were found in all groups. Glucose was predominant, followed by mannose, rhamnose, fucose, fructose, and ribose. Among the three organic acids in the whole body of black rockfish, lactic acid was predominant, followed by citric acid and oxalic acid. Total organic acid content in the control was significantly higher than those of FSM substitution groups.
