In conclusion, grower olive flounder could achieve full compensatory growth up to 4-week feed deprivation when fish were fed with extruded pellet to apparent satiation once a day for 16 weeks or 15, 14, 13, 12 and 10 weeks after 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-week feed deprivation at suboptimal temperature.
Compensatory growth and food consumption in gibel carp, Carassius auratus gibelio and Chinese longsnout catfish, Leiocassis longirostris, experiencing cycles of feed deprivation and re-feeding.
0001) difference in body weight of fish was observed between C-8W and all other treatments with 2-week feed deprivation at week 2 (Figure 1).
The accelerated growth of olive flounder with a 2-week feed deprivation at week 6 and 8 resulted in no significant difference in final body weight of fish between the C-8W treatment and all other treatments in this study and indicated that full compensatory growth was achieved in all fish groups.
Effect of cycles of feed deprivation
on growth and food consumption of immature three-spined sticklebacks and European minnows.
1998; Gaylord and Gatlin, 2000), high lipid (HL) diet did not effectively improve the weight gain of olive flounder subjected to 1- and 2-week feed deprivation in this study.
Results of this study demonstrated that juvenile olive flounder subjected to 2-week feed deprivation could achieve full compensatory growth in suboptimal temperature with dietary supplementation of protein or combined high protein and high lipid was more effective to improve compensatory growth of fish than dietary supplementation of lipid only.
2003) wherein the authors studied the effect of feed deprivation
for 24, 48 and 72 h post hatch and suggested the need to feed chicks immediately after hatch to ensure proper development of gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas (Noy and Sklan, 2001).
during molting led to decreased plasma T3 concentration and increased plasma T4 concentration.
