Abstract One of the working hypotheses of this project is that growth retardation of turbot cultured in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is caused by the accumulation of growth inhibiting factors (GIF) produced by the turbot themselves in the culture water. Our first goal was to demonstrate the production of growth inhibiting factors by turbot following the methodology of Yurl and Perlmutter. A series of successive experiments was performed. Extracts from turbot culture water were tested for GIF presence in early life stage tests using eggs and larvae and small scale growth trials with juveniles. Our second goal was to demonstrate the transfer of GIF between tanks. Four experiments involving the integration of experimental tanks in a farm scale setting were performed. Our third goal was to demonstrate the presence of GIF at commercial farms. Two juvenile growth trials were performed.
