Electron microscope images obtained from the distal intestine of sea bass fed with diet B. a In the apex portion, well developed, partly damaged microvilli are present (white arrowhead); in the median portion of the enterocytes, there are large heterogeneous vacuoles. The cytoplasm of a Goblet cell is also visible. b Vacuoles at higher magnification showing a heterogeneous content (white arrows). c Apical portion of a cytoplasm in which there are long microvilli and a well-developed tubulo-vesicular system (white arrowhead). Vacuoles with heterogeneous content are also visible. v vacuoles, m microvilli, Gc Goblet cell. Bar in a 5 μm; bars in b, c 200 nm
