Effects of Bodymass on the SDA of the Taimen

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 269)


Specific Dynamic Action (SDA), the metabolic phenomenon resulting from the digestion and assimilation of a meal, is generally influenced by body mass. The effects of body mass on SDA of taimen (Hucho taimen, Pallas) was evaluated, by measuring the temporal pattern of the oxygen consumption rates of taimen with body masses, 38, 31, 24, 17, 10 g, after feeding, at 17.5 °C, Factorial scope of peak VO2, Duration and SDAE had a tendency to decrease with reduced body mass.
