This study involved monitoring the activity levels of three groups of adult rainbow trout that were either fasted on a weekly cycle, fed to satiation, or fed to satiation and then acutely stressed by overcrowding twice weekly. A subsample of fish was implanted with electromyogram (EMG) radiotransmitters that broadcast a signal proportional to muscle activation levels, allowing for the continuous recording of swimming activity by a remote receiver. These EMG transmitters did not affect the… CONTINUE READING
