The association between parasite infection and growth rates in Arctic charr: do fast growing fish have more parasites?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-01)
Trophically transmitted parasites are known to impair fish growth in experimental studies, but this is not well documented in natural populations. For Arctic charr [<i>Salvelinus alpinus</i> (L.)], individual growth is positively correlated with food consumption. However, increased food consumption will increase the exposure to trophically transmitted parasites. Using a correlative approach, we ...
