A study was carried out to investigate the effect of water temperature on daily pattern and rate of total ammonia nitrogen (TAN) excretion in juvenile dark-banded rockfish Sebastes inermis (mean body weight: ) under fasting and feeding conditions. Fish were acclimated over 10 days under three different water temperatures (15, 20 and ). After 72 hours of starvation, fasting TAN excretion was measured at each temperature. To investigate post-prandial TAN excretion, fish were hand-fed with a commercial diet containing 47.7% crude protein for 7 days, two times daily at 09:00 and 17:00 hr. Water was sampled from both the inlet and outlet of each chamber every 2 hrs over a 24 hr period. Both fasting and post-prandial TAN excretion increased with increase in water temperature (P<0.05). Mean fasting TAN excretion rates at 15, 20 and were 8.1, 9.0 and 9.2 mg TAN kg , respectively. The value of was lower than those of 20 and (P<0.05), but there was no significant difference between and (P>0.05). Mean post-prandial TAN excretion rates at 15, 20 and were 20.1, 22.9 and 23.4 mg TAN kg , respectively. A peak post-prandial TAN excretion rate occurred after 12 hrs from the first feeding at (mean 28.7 mg TAN kg ), (33.7 mg TAN kg ) and (36.8 mg TAN kg ), respectively. The TAN loss for ingested nitrogen at (36.2%) was lower than that of (40.8%) and (41.7%). Based on overall results, water temperature exerts a profound influence on the nitrogen metabolism of juvenile dark-banded rockfish.
