Feeding strategy of the brown trout (Salmo trutta L.) in running water

  • A. Neveu


The approach to the study of an aquatic ecosystem involves, above all, the analysis of the partitioning of energy between the different food chains. The objective is to bring together the elements for a better understanding of the interactions in order to maximize exploitation of the resources either for fishing or for aquaculture.
