Initial feeding in migratory brown trout (Salmo trutta L.) alevins

C. Zimmerman, Henrik Mosegaard

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


Initial feeding of brown trout was investigated under laboratory conditions. Fifty per cent feeding occurred when yolk constituted approximately 31% of total alevin dry weight, and feeding rate was positively correlated to developmental stage. The possible ecological implications of initial feeding are discussed.
