  • Abstract Feeding cycles entrain biological rhythms, which enables animals to anticipate feeding times and so maximizes food utilization. In this article the effect of mealtime on locomotor activity, blood glucose, gastric pH and digestive enzymes was studied in two groups of seabream ( Sparus aurata ): one group received a single daily meal at random times either during the light or the dark (random feeding, RF), whereas the other group received the meal during the light period every day at the… CONTINUE READING
