Diel and Seasonal Changes in Response to Stimuli: A Plague and a Promise for Mariculture
Eighth Annual Meeting of the World Mariculture Society
This paper reviews some recent findings on the importance of the time of day that fish and other animals receive specific stimuli, i.e., medication, gonadotropin injections, disturbance, temperature change, and feeding. Significant differences are elicited in growth, fattening, reproductive indexes and mortality depending on the time of day when fish are stimulated. Such differences cause difficulty in analysis of results and demand a more complex experimental design, but hold considerable promise for increased control of cultured species.
