Abstract
  • The utility of the fatty acid biomarker (FAB) approach in fisheries ecology is limited by our understanding of how biotic and abiotic factors determine dietary markers in fish tissues. An 8-week laboratory experiment was conducted on two species of juvenile gadids (Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus and walleye Pollock, Theragra chalcogramma) reared at 3 °C or 9 °C and fed a diet enriched with either oils of marine origin or terrestrial plant origin. Non-linear models were fitted to investigate how tissue type and temperature mediated the proportion of FABs in fish. Across temperatures, fatty acid (FA) profiles were similar for both species of gadids. FAs also showed high temporal sensitivity across temperatures, and were evident in fish after only one week of feeding. Pacific cod held at 9 °C and fed a terrestrial plant oil (TPO) enriched diet had significantly higher C₁₈ polyunsaturated FAs (PUFAs) in their liver than cod held at 3 °C after one week, but this temperature effect diminished as tissues reached equilibrium with their diet. C₁₈ PUFAs were significantly higher in liver than in muscle.Differential proportions of C₁₈ PUFAs among tissues provide temporal patterns that may help with disentangling the timing of offshore– inshore nursery migrations in juvenile fish. Calibration coefficients were determined to explain the relationship between FAs in the diet and FAs in fish tissues. These coefficients will support future development of quantitative estimates of diet in juvenile low-fat fish.
