The main emphasis of my work is the experimental investigation of food conversion efficiency in relation to growth of Baltic cod. In particular the chemical composition of prey organisms and the corresponding physiological changes of the predator cod are within interest. Findings of experimental studies are furthermore linked with field data, to result in a better understanding of natural cod growth and their ecophysiology.
