• Growth

Growth is a quantitative process associated with an increase in mass and linear size. In fish, a distinction is made between linear growth and growth in body mass. Unlike other vertebrates, fish grow throughout their lives, but their growth rate decreases with age. Growth is influenced by habitat: food availability, water composition, pressure from predatory fish, climatic conditions, anthropogenic impact, and others.
