Three practical isoproteic (54% protein) diets were formulated to contain graded levels of crude fat (diet L: 10%, diet M: 20% and diet H: 30%). Each diet was assigned unrestrictedly to three and restrictedly to two replicate groups of fish (IBW 243 g). In unrestricted groups, increasing the dietary lipid level led to a significant decrease in voluntary(More)
In fish, dietary digestible energy (DE) content is a major factor controlling feed intake. It was therefore of interest to determine how circadian rhythm of feeding activity is influenced by the dietary DE levels. To that end, groups of European sea bass were fed on demand by means of self feeders, under light-dark and constant light conditions, with a(More)
Sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) (135 ± 4 g) were reared under tank-based recirculating aquaculture system for a 63-day period at four densities: 10, 40, 70, 100 kg m. Fish performance, stress indicators (plasma cortisol, proteonemia plus other blood parameters—Na, K, glucose, pH, total CO2) and water quality were monitored. At the end of the 63-day period,(More)
Self-feeding systems allow fish to freely express feeding activity. A simple rod at the water surface can act as a trigger and provide fish with a way of obtaining pellets from a feeder. Such a rod presented to experienced European seabass, Dicentrurchus Zubran, may lead to feed wastage, probably as a result of unintentional fish contacts with the trigger.(More)
Reared sea bass were submitted to six stressful situations: hyperoxia with or without hypercapnia, increased stocking density in an open flow or recirculating system, transfer to another tank and nodavirus injection. The potentially negative impact of these factors on the lives of sea bass was investigated by measuring 9 water parameters and 19 fish(More)
Mimesis is a relatively widespread phenomenon among reef fish, but the ontogenetic processes relevant for mimetic associations in fish are still poorly understood. In the present study, the allometric growth of two allopatric leaf-mimetic species of ephippid fishes, Chaetodipterus faber from the Atlantic and Platax orbicularis from the Indo-Pacific, was(More)

The chronic effects of exposing sea bass (average initial weight 100 g) to ammonia in water at 22 °C were first evaluated over a 61-day period (period 1, P1) during which nine different groups were submitted to nine ambient ammonia levels ranging from 0.014 to 0.493 mg l NH3-N (0.53–16.11 mg l –1 total ammonia nitrogen (TA-N)) and fed using self-feeders.
