The aim of this study was to investigate whether the seasonal feeding cycle of the anadromous Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) is regulated by a lipostatic mechanism and if leptin (Lep) might act as an endocrine signal of adiposity. Offspring of anadromous Arctic charr with a body mass of 121 g were divided into two treatment groups; one was given feed in excess from March to November, and the other was fasted between April and early June and fed in excess thereafter. In the continuously fed… CONTINUE READING
