Abstract

We fitted the flexible nonlinear model y=a*exp(-b*x-c/x) to long-term data of daily gain (DG), feed intake (FI) and feed efficiency (FE) of different strains of communally-reared turbot from a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS). We modelled each trait (y=DG, FI, FE) as a function of actual body...
