Juvenile (5.5–5.7 g) white leg shrimp were exposed to mycotoxin in one indoor trial by feeding
fumonisin B1 (FB1) at levels from 0.2 to 2.0 μg g−1 FB1 for 30 days. Shrimp growth was affected after
exposure to more than 0.6 μg g−1 FB1. Soluble muscle protein concentration decreased, and changes in
myosin thermodynamic properties were observed in shrimp after 30 days of exposure to FB1. Marked
histological changes in tissue of shrimp fed a diet containing FB1 at 2.0 μg g−1 were also observed.
Shrimp fed diets containing more than 0.6 μg g−1 FB1 showed greater decrease in shear forces after
12 days of ice storage.
