Abstract

Spectral analysis of intake data revealed a tendency toward 4-day cycles in amount eaten. The 4-day cycle probably reflects an internally mediated biological rhythm. Appetite thus varies over time and satiation certainly operates in the behavior of lemon sharks. -from Sport Fishery Abstracts
