Abstract

1. Generate critically identified data for incorporation into factorial growth models that describe nutrient supply and nutrient retention in relation to temperature. 2. Determine the maintenance dietary protein and energy requirements for Atlantic salmon at normal to high temperatures. 3. Develop biochemical tools to understand the effect of temperature on the growth performance of fish. 4. Determine the optimum dietary protein to energy ratio for Atlantic salmon at normal to high temperatures. 5. Use biochemical tools to understand the effect of temperature on protein turnover and growth performance in barramundi. 6. Use biochemical tools to understand the effect of temperature on protein turnover and growth performance in Atlantic salmon.
