  author={Harri Helminen and Jouko Sarvala and Anu Hirvonen},
We used a bioenergetics model to estimate daily food consumption of young-of-the-year (YOY) and adult vendace in the mesotrophic Lake Pyhäjärvi. Weekly samples of fish and zooplankton, plus temperature data, were collected from May to October 1987, to describe the growth and diet of vendace. The estimates of population size were based on spring abundance of YOY and catch statistics. Information on the physiological energetics of vendace was derived from literature sources. The YOY showed steady… CONTINUE READING
