Before any growth can be,achieved by an organism there must be sufficient energy in the food to provide for the metabolic demands of maintenance and any activity associated with food intake. In culture practices it is possible to reduce these energy costs to a minimum and to optimize food conversion. This can be done through an understanding of the environmental and biological factors affecting metabolic rate with a view to reduce the demands on the system and hence increase the production. It is therefore desirable to examine the broad picture of energy exchange within an animal; then proceed to more specific considerations in fish. Since it is the principles and prospects which are of major interest here, no attempt is made to make this a major review of the subject.
