Abstract:

Resting metabolic rate in southern catfish of 2 and 5 day fasting groups were significantly higher than that of the 15 day fasting group (P < 0·05). After feeding, peak metabolic rate of specific dynamic action (SDA) of the 15 day fasting group was significantly lower than that of the 2 and 5 day fasting groups (P < 0·05). The duration of the SDA of the 15 day fasting group was significantly longer than that of the 2 day fasting group (P < 0·05) and the SDA coefficient of the 15 day fasting group was significantly lower than that of the 2 day fasting group (P < 0·05).
