  • 1he present paper is an attempt to interpret some of the data on fish growth available in the literature, emphasis beiI1g given to a reassessment of von Bertalanffy's theory of growth as applied to fishes. In that theory, grQwth is defined as the net result of twO processes with opposite teI)dencies, one synth¢sizing native protein (anabolism), the other ~egrading it (catabolism). Both food and 'oxygen supply are needed for arHtb9E.sm, and this investigation presents evidence suggesting that… CONTINUE READING
