Appendix A. A table showing fish species for which nitrogen and phosphorus excretion were directly measured.

TABLE A1. Fish species for which nitrogen and phosphorus excretion were directly measured. Linearized power functions were used to describe the scaling of excretion rates (E, units of µmol/h) relative to body wet mass (M, units of g): log(E) = a + b log(M). Bold type indicates statistically significant equations (P < 0.05).
