  1. Average biometric measurements observed in the 3 treatment groups and Control. Total fish weight (total weight), total fish length (total length), standardized European eel eye index (eye index), pectoral fin color (fin color), pectoral fin length (fin length), standardized pectoral fin index (fin index), total liver weight (liver weight) and hepatosomatic index (HSI) were measured. Avg. indicates group averages and SEM indicates standard error of the mean
