Atlantic salmon was fed a commercial-like diet either as is (92% dry matter) or soaked for 2 h in sea water prior to feeding (70% dry matter). The salmon showed large individual variation in gastrointestinal passage rate and few significant differences between the two diets were revealed. However, the soaked feed resulted in a significantly higher gastric evacuation rate than the dry diet.
