Abstract Examining muscle samples of eels cultured for experimental purposes, the following question arose: “are differences in muscle fibre characteristics, occurring between individual eels, related to differences in growth rate?” In order to obtain an answer to this question the following investigations were carried out: 1. (a) Fibre diameters and sarcomere lengths of red and white myotomal muscle fibres were recorded in two samples of eels: (1) 30–40 cm eels, caught after 4–7 years of fresh… Expand
