Environmental enrichment is the inclusion of materials into hatchery rearing tanks to create more natural or complex environments. This study evaluated juvenile rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss rearing with the use of a vertically-suspended array consisting of 15 rods in comparison to an established enrichment array of nine vertically-suspended rods, and unenriched controls. At the end of 116 days, there were no significant differences in gain, feed conversion ratio, total length, or… Expand
