Bioenergetics modeling of juvenile rainbow trout growth: population dynamics and food consumption effectsPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Using previous bioenergetics models for fish species, we investigated the growth of juvenile rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss. The main objectives were: (1) to determine the effects on growth caused by varying levels of food consumption and (2) to observe the effects on growth caused by development of a dominance hierarchy while maintaining all other experimental variables. Our analysis indicated that the young age of our fish varied results from what we were expecting to obtain based on previous models and though our data was not consistent with the model for adult rainbow trout, our results followed a similar trend regardless of food level or dominance.
