Six cod were starved for 78 days in an aquarium at about 14°, and the effect on various constituents of the body were investigated. There was found to be a decrease in body and liver weights, liver fat content, and muscle ash, an increase in muscle water and bile in the gall bladder, while the percentages of intercellular space and brain fat were not affected. The limiting value for liver fat appeared to be about 2%.
