What is it about?

This work evaluates the effect of continuous light on gene expression pathways leading to a fast-growth phenotype in fish. It provides a global understanding of the molecular pathways involved, their implications and the potential mechanisms behind the plasticity of teleost fish.

Why is it important?

It generates a better understanding of the plasticity of vertebrates and how they can cope and take advantage of apparently negative cues.


We trust this work might serve as an interesting point of discussion between evolutionary biologists, physiologists, producers and welfare researchers
