2008; see also the discussion in Chapter 14). Although there are a wide variety of nutritional condition indices, this section will only cover those related to digestive system organization (histological biomarkers) and function (pancreatic and intestinal enzyme activities). In vertebrates, different organs of the digestive system have been shown to employ different cellular mechanisms in response to diet quantity and quality. Thus, the use of the intestine and digestive accessory glands as target organs of the nutritional and physiological status in fish is well known and, up to a certain limit, standardized.

In addition, alterations in fatty acid metabolism derived from unbalanced diets have resulted in modifications of nuclei shape and size, chromatin density, and cytoplasmatic lipid deposition in hepatocytes (Caballero et al. 1999; Mobin et al. 2000). Disorders in glycogen and protein synthesis and/or their utilization may also result in an increased level of basophilia in the cytoplasm of the hepatocytes of larvae fed unbalanced diets (Segner et al. 1994; Mobin et al. 2000). The earlier differentiation and morphogenesis of the exocrine pancreas in comparison with that of the liver or intestine facilitates its use as a histological index for assessing the condition of the larva as soon as it emerges from the egg envelope.
