Behaviour of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) held in sea-pens in relation to feeding and growth


, : Behaviour of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) held in sea-pens in relation to feeding and growth. Bulletin of the Aquaculture Association of Canada ( 3): 89-90

Behaviour over 2 months from August on Atlantic cod held in sea pens at Bay Bulls, Newfoundland, to determine activity and feed utilization of cod 50 to 90 and 30 to 60 cm fed on capelin, farm pellet or test pellet was investigated. Results indicated that growth differences existed among cod fed on capelin and the 2 formulated feeds. These appeared to be due to differences in the proportion of each feed which the fish consumed, rather than any intrinsic qualities of feed.
