Experimental culture of the river prawn Macrobrachium americanum larvae (Bate, 1868), with emphasis on feeding and stocking density effect on survival.
In the context of the information found, may affirm that the stocking density effect over the final weight of the fish may be directly related to growth phase, species, age, size, management and time of year (MATTOS et al., 2013).
[28] and Huang and Chiu [15] argued that tilapia is a territorial and aggressive fish so that the density effect on growth might be explainable by their competition for territories, as well as the permanent stress caused by crowding.
Upon addition of non-predator snails and tadpoles in succession, the density effect was not significant as observed through the post hoc Tukey tests (Table 2).

However, speakers of German showed the same difference between the two sets of pictures as Spanish speakers did in a picture naming task, which suggested that any explanation of neighborhood density effect may not depend on language-specific properties.
