e.m., unless otherwise noted. Statistical analyses were done using GraphPad Prism v.5.0b or R v.3.4.3. In cases where assumptions of normality or equal variance were not met, we square root transformed data before analysis. Statistical significance was accepted at p < 0.05.

(a) Try step 1: the newest dictate of temperatures on the diel version from inside the metabolic rate

Adult cunner at the warm temperature (5.6°C) showed a strong diel rhythm in , with elevated, variable rates during the day when the fish were more active and a stable, significantly lower rate at night when the fish were inactive (figure 1a,b). After acute cooling to 0.6°C, the diel rhythm was dampened such that was no longer significantly different between day and night (figure 1a,b). The average daytime was more thermally sensitive than the average night-time , as indicated by a significantly higher Qten (5.1) for the daytime comparison between the warm and cold compared with the night-time comparison (Q10 = 2.8). A similar result was found for juvenile cunner (figure 1c).

(b) Experiment dos: influence out-of temperatures and you may dark on the metabolism and craft

As found in experiment 1, cunner at the warm temperature (6.2°C) under a normal winter photoperiod (11 L : 13 D) showed a strong diel rhythm in (figure 2a), with significantly higher average during the day compared with at night (figure 2b; see electronic supplementary material, figure S1 for detailed explanation).
