Briefly: Feed fortification with an iodine rich macroalgae (Laminaria digitata) and selenised yeast, at its maximum permitted levels, resulted in a six-fold increase for iodine and a 2.9-fold increase for selenium contents in trout fillets without altering sensorial traits. The fortified fish presented a nutritional contribution of 12.5% (daily recommended intake, DRI) for iodine and 78% DRI for selenium.
