The effect of temperature and fish size on growth, feed intake, food conversion efficiency and stomach evacuation rate of Atlantic salmon post-smolts



The effect of temperature and fish size on growth, feed intake, food conversion efficiency and stomach evacuation rate of Atlantic salmon post-smolts



Aquaculture3: 1 4, 36-42



The present paper describes the growth properties of Atlantic salmon (<i>Salmo salar</i>) post-smolts reared at 6, 10, 14 and 18 degrees C for 12 weeks following transfer to seawater. Growth rate, feed intake, feed conversion efficiency (FCE), and stomach evacuation rate were significantly influenced by temperature and fish size.
