(Inter-Research, 2010-08-18)Captive birds and mammals reared in enriched rearing environments have been shown to behave more flexibly compared to animals reared in impoverished or plain environments. Recent evidence has shown that this is also true ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Is individual variation in competitive performance of reared juvenile cod influenced by haemoglobin genotype? (The University of Bergen, 2000)To succeed in scramble competition for food an individual fish will have to have characteristics that allow it to respond rapidly to encountered prey. A trait such as metabolic rate, which has a positive effect on oxygen ...Journal articlePeer reviewed
Temperature-dependent digestion handling time in juvenile cod and possible consequences for prey choice (Inter-Research, 1999-05-18)The paper combines experimental work with modelling. The aim was to estimate the temperature-dependent digestion handling time, which is defined as the time taken to digest the whole prey or the whole stomach contents, and ...Journal articlePeer reviewed
Towards more efficient longline fisheries: fish feeding behaviour, bait characteristics and development of alternative baits (Springer, 2014-12)Better knowledge of food search behavior in fish is essential for studies that aim to improve longline fishing, particularly through bait development. This review provides an overview of our understanding of how fish detect ...Journal article
