Notes : The effect of feeding on the respiration rate of Brachionus plicatilis was studied. Oxygen consumption was determined under two feeding regimes, duplicate feeding and constant feeding. Oxygen consumption rate increased during feeding. The oxygen consumption profile is discussed in relation to the following processes: 1. filtration, mastication, and locomotion during feeding, 2. specific dynamic action (SDA), 3. egg formation and routine metabolism.
