The physiological role of taurine on bile salt metabolism in yellowtail Seriola quinqueyadiata fed on soybean protein diets supplemented with graded levels of taurine were investgated by a 41-weeks rearing trial. Among the dietary treatments, fish given a non-taurine supplemented diet showed the lowest biliary bile salt, hepatic taurine and plasma cholesterol levels, but the highest plasma 7ƒ¿-hydroxycholesterol concentration. In addition, the non-taurine supplemented diet induced the hightest
