In a previous experiment, the role of genistein as a nutraceutical in modulating stress had been studied in two coldwater fish species namely, Steelhead trout and Coho salmon. In that experiment, there were no significant differences in stress physiology between the control and the nutraceutical supplemented groups. We speculated that coldwater fish could not utilize genistein due to their slow metabolism.
