Swimming performance of silver eels is severely impaired by the swim-bladder parasite Anguillicola crassus
Infection with the swim-bladder parasite Anguillicola crassus is suggested as one of the principal causes of the collapse of the European eel population. This nematode has been introduced in EuropeExpand

Behavioral Strategy and the Physiological Stress Response in Rainbow Trout Exposed to Severe Hypoxia
In higher vertebrates, two opposite behavioral coping strategies can be distinguished that are associated by a typical neuroendocrine pattern. Little is known about the individual variation in theExpand

Substrate mobilization and hormonal changes in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, L.) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio, L.) during deep hypoxia and subsequent recovery
Common carp (at 20°C) and rainbow trout (at 15°C) were fitted with an indwelling cannula in the dorsal aorta. The fish were exposed to a controlled decline of waterpO2 followed by 90 min deep hypoxiaExpand

Endurance swimming of European eel
A long-term swim trial was performed with five female silver eels Anguilla anguilla of 0.8-1.0 kg (c. 80cm total length, L T ) swimming at 0.5 body lengths (BL) s -1 , corresponding to the meanExpand

Are dioxin-like contaminants responsible for the eel (Anguilla anguilla) drama?
Eel populations worldwide are dangerously close to collapsing. Our study is the first to show that current levels of dioxin-like contaminants are strong candidates because of their devastatingExpand

Hypoxia tolerance of Amazon fish Respirometry and energy metabolism of the cichlid Astronotus Ocellatus
Abstract As a result of regular flood pulses, the Amazon basin exhibits large annual changes in its chemical and physical parameters. Ecology and distribution of fish communities seem to be directedExpand

Artificial maturation and reproduction of European silver eel: Development of oocytes during final maturation
Attempts on artificial maturation of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) have largely been unsuccessful. The moment of stimulation of final maturation and ovulation is mainly based on weight increaseExpand

Behavioural responses and biochemical correlates in Solea solea to gradual hypoxic exposure
The common sole, Solea solea, a benthic flatfish, is frequently exposed to environmental hypoxic conditions. A succession of behavioural responses to oxygen depletion can be observed. Under moderateExpand

Functional coupling of glycolysis and phosphocreatine utilization in anoxic fish muscle.
Three fish species with different strategies for anoxic survival (goldfish, tilapia, and common carp) were exposed to environmental anoxia (4, 3, and 1 h, respectively). The concentrations of highExpand
