Metabolism, food consumption and growth of plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) and flounder (Platichthys flesus) in relation to fish size and temperature
Abstract Daily rates of oxygen consumption, food consumption and growth of plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) and flounder (Platichthys flesus) have been measured in the laboratory at various constantExpand

Sand gobies in the Dutch Wadden Sea (pomatoschistus, gobiidae, pisces)
Abstract The seasonal fluctuation in numbers of sand gobies was investigated in the Dutch Wadden Sea by means of trawling surveys in 1962 and 1964. Fluctuation in numbers appeared to be mainlyExpand

Effects on benthic scavengers of discards and damaged benthos produced by the beam-trawl fishery in the southern North Sea
The beam-trawl fishery for flatfish produces large amounts of dying discards as well as damaged and disturbed benthos. The importance of these food sources to scavenging benthic species wasExpand

Potential impact of temperature change on epibenthic predator–bivalve prey interactions in temperate estuaries
Abstract Temperate estuaries are indispensable as refuelling areas for long-distance shorebirds, where they depend on intertidal benthic fauna, such as bivalves, as food source. Bivalve recruitmentExpand

A Seasonal Fluctuation in Growth Rate of Young Plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) and Sole (Solea solea) in the Laboratory at Constant Temperatures and a Natural Daylight Cycle
Young plaice and sole were kept for more than a year in large tanks at different constant temperatures and a natural light-dark cycle. Food digestion and growth of the fish were measured at monthlyExpand

Feeding and growth of juvenile Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus in relation to temperature and food supply
Abstract The growth of juvenile Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus (Temming et Schlegel) exposed to various feeding and temperature regimes was studied in the laboratory. The temperature limitsExpand
