The current study describes the metabolic performance of adult green sea urchin Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis in terms of oxygen consumption, feed intake and gonad growth in relation to body weight and temperature. The experiments were conducted at six constant temperatures (4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 degrees C), and with three body size groups, i.e. small (S, 40 g), medium (M, 65 g), and large (L, 100 g).
