A holistic statistical modelling procedure for the analysis of energy balance (EB) studies is proposed in this review. We show that a switch from EB-based analysis to heat production (HP)-based analysis has some advantages. The use of augmented EB data with a fasting HP estimate is proposed to...

Simple growth models have proven helpful to study and predict growth trajectories of fish with different life histories and from various environments, and have found numerous applications in ecology, fisheries and aquaculture worldwide. The most applied simple models (e.g. von Bertalanffy) convey...
