The swimming ability (mechanics, oxygen consumption, level of hormones, the effects of temperature, lactic acid production) of the Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki
Entry ID: K057_1998_2002_NZ_1

Abstract: Antarctic fish kept in the aquarium system in the wet lab were videotaped while swimming and the data was analysed frame by frame to determine swimming mechanics in these animals. Fish were also introduced to a tunnel respirometer and exercised at a steadily increasing water velocity until they could no longer swim. This is a standard measure known as the U-crit. The respirometer allows oxygen ... View entire text
