Farmed cod were starved from medio September to medio January. The gastric evacuation rate and changes in weight, length and condition-factor, as well as weight of liver and gonads were followed. Sensory profiling and analyses of water-content and water-holding capacity of the muscle was performed in order to assess if starvation caused changes in muscle quality.
