A growth model for coho salmon including effects of varying ration allotments and temperature

A growth model for coho salmon including effects of varying ration allotments and temperature

Aquaculture 30(1-4): 125-144

A growth model is developed for coho salmon which accounts for temperatures and feeding rates typically encountered in fish hatchery operation. Feeding rates utilized by the model ranged from maintenance to maximum utilizable rations. The model is derived from an empirical equation for maximum growth rate, and a theoretical equation for net energy utilization. The resultant equation is modified to improve fit at higher feeding levels. Calibration is accomplished with experimentally obtained data. The model is similar to 1 developed by G.D. Stauffer, but represents an improvement because points on the growth curve between maintenance and maximum ration can be fitted even if maintenance and maximum requirements are obtained independently.
