Energy dilution with α-cellulose in diets for Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) juveniles - effects on growth, feed intake, liver size and digestibility of nutrients
(The University of Bergen, 2009-05-03)
Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is known to grow large livers, especially farmed cod, but commercially, muscle growth is preferred, due to profits. Therefore, main focus in this feeding trial was to achieve lowered liver size, ...
Quantification and localization of StAR expression in Atlantic cod ovaries
(The University of Bergen, 2009-06-02)
Steroidogenesis is essential for the production of sex steroids, and therefore also the sexual maturation process. The rate-limiting step in steroidogenesis is the movement of cholesterol from the outer to the inner ...
Is individual variation in competitive performance of reared juvenile cod influenced by haemoglobin genotype?
(The University of Bergen, 2000)
To succeed in scramble competition for food an individual fish will have to have characteristics that allow it to respond rapidly to encountered prey. A trait such as metabolic rate, which has a positive effect on oxygen ...
Environmental variability in the early rearing environment generates behaviourally flexible cod: implications for rehabilitating wild populations
(The Royal Society, 2005-06-02)
The release of hatchery-reared fishes for restoring threatened and endangered populations is one of the most controversial issues in applied ecology. A central issue has been to determine whether releases cause extinction ...
