Brown trout growth models
These Excel visual basic models estimate brown trout growth rates, from time series data of water temperature, and under various feeding assumptions.
There are two types of models:
1. Bioenergetics-based models driven by temperature and food (invertebrate or fish diet), and with an optional invertebrate drift-foraging model front end;
2. Wet weight models assuming maximum invertebrate consumption – driven only by water temperature.
