1. 1. Postprandial effects on serum lipoprotein distribution were determined in juvenile steelhead trout (Salmo gairdnerii). 2. 2. As many as eight lipoproteins were detected, including proteins of α, α2, and β mobility, as well as up to three discrete proteins with albumin-like mobility. 3. 3. Two and 4 hr after feeding, large electrophoretically-immobile lipoproteins, corresponding to chylomicra, were detected. 4. 4. Isolated d = 0.96 lipoproteins were 80% triacylglycerol; thus confirming the chylomicra-nature of these particles. 5. 5. The presence of triacylglycerol-rich chylomicra in the serum of trout suggests that exogenous lipid is, in part, transported to the body tissues of these animals in a manner similar to mammals.
