Abstract

Fish production, whether in the natural or captive aquatic ecosystems, largely depends on a reliable supply of nutritious food preferred by the different life-stages of a species and congenial environmental conditions that stimulate optimum intake, digestion and utilization of the food. Fish being ectotherms their survival, growth and reproduction are greatly influenced by changes in water temperature besides synergetic effect of several other physico-chemical factors prevailing in the aquatic environment. In this article, an attempt is made to highlight the basic nutritional needs of marine, and freshwater fish, and the likely impacts of climate change, especially the role of temperature on intake and utilization of food nutrients by fish.
