Chronically starved rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) showed a significant fall in liver size, total liver glycogen, liver glycogen concentration and plasma glucose levels. Liver lipid concentration did not differ significantly from controls although total liver lipid reserves fell during the first 40 days of starvation but had partly recovered after 65 days of starvation. Plasma cortisol and T3 levels did not show consistent changes concomitant with food deprivation over the 65 day period of the… CONTINUE READING
