Rocksor created the topic: Article on what effects fish growth

There are quotes from scientists or aquatic fish experts on the effect of fish hormones and pheromones. They use goldfish as an example, and it's not hard to deduce that other fish release the same chemicals. We've heard about hormones to let a fish know to stop growing, but there are also pheromones released by big fish to prevent other fish from growing as fast, thereby reducing competition for resources.

See the links at the bottom for the actual references.
