This study revealed that the physiological response of juveniles of clown fish to the change of water temperature and substantiated that water temperature influenced juvenile growth, survival feeding and plasma levels significantly.
Oxygen uptake in a freshwater air-breathing fish with macrophytes
In the cultivation of various fish species in aquaculture is an important to have enough dissolved oxygen available for fish respiration.This oxygen can be produced by the photosynthesis of aquatic
Feed intake and oxygen consumption in fish
It is suggested that even at normoxia voluntary feed intake in fish is limited/determined by oxygen consumption and/or the oxidative metabolism.
Development of efficient recirculation system for Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) culture using low cost materials
This research clearly demonstrated that it is feasible to use the proposed configuration in aquaculture systems in areas where water source is limited, and represents an environmental standpoint for the conservation of water use in the Aquaculture industry.
Fuzzy-logic-based feeder system for intensive tilapia production (Oreochromis niloticus)
In high-fish-density aquaculture systems, tilapia producers are compelled to provide 100% of food required to obtain profitable growth rates. It is well known that fish have a low food conversion
An automated recirculation aquaculture system based on fuzzy logic control for aquaculture production of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
It is concluded that it is possible to increase the productivity and profitability of aquaculture systems, by applying new approaches based on modern control techniques, such as fuzzy logic control, that promote resource optimization.
GIS-based models for the development of sustainable aquaculture of native fish species in central Mexico: a catchment level approach for the protection of biodiversity.
The development of GIS-based tools at catchment level which address the culture of three species of native Atherinids and twospecies of native Ictalurids within a group of Mexican catchments are outlined.

Effects of fluoride on morphology, growth, development, and thyroid hormone of Chinese toad (Bufo gargarizans) embryos
Excessive fluoride could induce morphology malformations, inhibit embryonic growth and development, and disrupt the normal function of maternal thyroid hormone in B. gargarizans embryos, according to real‐time PCR results.


Interactions of Feeding Rates and Environmental Temperature on Growth, Food Conversion, and Body Composition of Channel Catfish
Channel catfish fingerlings maintained in 20-gallon glass aquaria at 18, 22, 26, 30 and 34 C resulted in a near linear increase in lipid content and fatty acid composition and arachidonic and docosahexaenoic acid levels increased with decreasing temperatures.
Effects of temperature on growth and metabolism in juvenile turbot
Juvenile turbots show remarkable homeostatic capacities and so they have a relatively thermo-independent physiology within the range of temperature studied.
Influence of Oxygen Concentration on the Growth of Juvenile Coho Salmon
Abstract Juvenile coho salmon, Oncorhynchus kisutch (Walbaum), were held at 20° C. in 12-gallon bottles, usually 10 to a bottle, in continuously renewed fresh water having various dissolved oxygen
Influence of body size and food ration on the energy budget of rainbow trout Salmo gairdneri Richardson
Changes in fat and moisture content of the body, however, were such that Kin terms of energy utilization was independent of body size when the fish were feeding at the same level, and provides a base-line for comparison with the performance of other more complicated systems.
Simulation of the effects of oxygen on food consumption and growth of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus (L.)
Simulation results provide strong support for the oxygen limitation theory and can be used for the analysis of fish growth as affected by feed amount, feed composition, as well as environmental conditions (temperature, dissolved oxygen concentration).
Oxygen Requirements for Growth of Young Coho (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and Sockeye (O. nerka) Salmon at 15 °C
It was concluded that above a critical level ranging from 4.0 to 4.5 mg O2/L, growth and conversion efficiency were not limited when tested for relatively short periods (6–8 wk) under the pristine conditions of laboratory tanks.
The Energetics of Feeding, Metabolism and Growth of Brown Trout (Salmo trutta L.) in Relation to Body Weight, Water Temperature and Ration Size
The chief purpose of the present paper is to provide information on feeding and growth in brown trout and to develop equations to estimate the various components of the energy budget.
Effects of hypoxia and surface access on growth, mortality, and behavior of juvenile guppies, Poecilia reticulata
It is suggested that aquatic surface respiration increases the energy available for growth under hypoxic conditions by augmenting oxygen supply, which permits greater ingestion rate, and possibly by decreasing the cost of ventilation.
Optimum Temperature for Feeding and Growth of Tilapia zillii
T. zillii should be valuable for aquatic weed control wherever water temperatures exceed 22°C for a substantial portion of the year.
