Oxygen consumption rates and lactic acid levels of notothenioid fish to determine the exercise physiology of how a low water temperature has affected their ability to swim
Entry ID: K057_1985_1986_NZ_1

Abstract: Notothenioid fish live in a relatively constant temperature of -1.86C. In order to survive at this temperature they have undergone several modifications to their biochemical makeup. The ability of these fish to swim at low temperature was investigated with aspects of exercise physiology examined in order to determine how the low temperature has affected their ability to swim.
