Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) were fed to satiety and reared from approximately 60 g to 5000 g at ambient seawater temperatures. The effect of photoperiod manipulation on muscle growth was investigated from the start of the first sea winter. Continuous light treatment in winter/spring (1 November to 18 June) improved growth performance in fish, resulting(More)
The influence of freshwater environment on muscle growth in seawater was investigated in an inbred population of farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.). The offspring from a minimum of 64 families per group were incubated at either ambient temperature (ambient treatment) or in heated water (heated treatment). Growth was investigated using a mixed-effect(More)
OBJECTIVE To increase lean body mass and improve health status in patients with wasting associated with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) by treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH), recombinant human insulin-like growth factor 1 (rhIGF-1), or both. DESIGN Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. SETTING(More)
A simple HPLC method is presented to quantify the low concentration of hydroxylysyl pyridinoline (PYD) cross-links in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) muscle. The method involved the extraction of tissue with NaOH prior to hydrolysis, which greatly reduced the amount of protein to be hydrolyzed and made downstream operations easier and more reproducible.(More)
Growth performance, muscle cellularity and flesh quality were investigated in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) fed either of two diet ranges [high protein (HP), or low protein (LP)], which differed in digestible protein/digestible energy ratios but were of equivalent digestible energy content (21.4 MJ kg 1 wet weight). Smolts from an early maturing (Lochy)(More)
We examined 200 salespeople’s blogs using netnography method. Drawing on social learning theory and real salespeople’s blogs, we illustrate how and why sales people can learn by using blogging, both reading and writing. For example, blogging, writing and reading blogs, can keep salespeople networked with their peers within and across industries and help(More)

An Empirical Investigation of Successful, High Performing Turnaround Professionals: Application of the Dynamic Capabilities Theory BY Scott R. Baird 2014 Committee Chair: Wesley J. Johnston, Ph.D. Major Academic Unit: Marketing This research is about identifying the characteristics or success profiles of professionals working in the turnaround industry. The(More)
(Weatherley and Gill, 1987). Muscle fibres reach a maximum diameter, which is dictated by metabolic demands and diffusional constraints related to nutrient assimilation and/or metabolite removal. An important consequence of indeterminate growth is that the number of fibres needs to increase throughout much of the life cycle as the muscle mass increases,(More)
We have investigated the interactions between dietary vitamin C levels (at 33, 79, 135, and 424 mg kg-1 of wet mass feed) and growth rate on the collagen and cross-link contents of fast muscle in farmed juvenile Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.). The growth rate was measured over an 11 week period using the thermal growth coefficient (TGC). Alkaline-soluble(More)
