Evidence of violation of a basic assumption in models currently used for food consumption estimation in fish

Evidence of violation of a basic assumption in models currently used for food consumption estimation in fish

Archive of Fishery and Marine Research 49(3): 171-188

The quantification of food consumption in fish is essential for the development of quantitative trophic models of aquatic ecosystems and in aquaculture. Four models and their derivatives have mainly been used to estimate daily ration by modelling change in stomach contents over time, namely the Bajkov, Elliott-Persson, Olson-Mullen and MAXIMS models.
