When the temperature is below 10c you should think about feeding them wheatgerm based foods. The wheatgerm pellets I have say to stop feeding altogether when the temperature goes below 6c.
Last winter my fish simply stopped being interested in food once it got below about 6c.
Right now the pond is at 6c and the fish are eating a little of the wheatgerm pellets I give them, but their appetite has gone right down. They are massive porkers this year compared to their timid and tiny selves last year, so they might be hungry for longer this winter.
Hope that helps
