Determination of the isotopic turnover rate in the various tissues of an organism is one of the essential prerequisites for tracing the food sources of consumers and for elucidating trophic interactions in ecological studies using stable isotope analysis (SIA). Isotopic turnover and fractionation in the commercially important freshwater teleost grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idel- lus, however, are poorly understood so far. In the present study, we conducted a diet-switch exper- iment of C… CONTINUE READING
