The Use of Clove Oil as an Anesthetic for Rainbow Trout and Its Effects on Swimming Performance
Abstract The only anesthetic registered in North America for use in fisheries science is 3-aminobenzoic acid ethyl ester methanesulfate (tricaine or MS-222). Although MS-222 is a very effectiveExpand

Evidence to Challenge the ''2% Rule'' for Biotelemetry
Abstract Swimming performance was compared among groups of juvenile rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (5–10 g) with and without intraperitoneally implanted radio transmitters. The generally acceptedExpand

Remote monitoring of heart rate as a measure of recovery in angled Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar (L.)
The introduction of ‘Catch and Release’ fishery programs are now widely employed by fisheries managers in most Atlantic Provinces, primarily due to the recent decline of Atlantic salmon stocks on theExpand

Linking physiology and biomineralization processes to ecological inferences on the life history of fishes.
Biomineral chemistry is frequently used to infer life history events and habitat use in fishes; however, significant gaps remain in our understanding of the underlying mechanisms. Here we have takenExpand

Thyroid hormones correlate with resting metabolic rate, not daily energy expenditure, in two charadriiform seabirds
Summary Thyroid hormones affect in vitro metabolic intensity, increase basal metabolic rate (BMR) in the lab, and are sometimes correlated with basal and/or resting metabolic rate (RMR) in a fieldExpand

Evidence of Circadian Rhythm, Oxygen Regulation Capacity, Metabolic Repeatability and Positive Correlations between Forced and Spontaneous Maximal Metabolic Rates in Lake Sturgeon Acipenser fulvescens
Animal metabolic rate is variable and may be affected by endogenous and exogenous factors, but such relationships remain poorly understood in many primitive fishes, including members of the familyExpand

Stress-induced sex ratios in ground squirrels: support for a mechanistic hypothesis
Systematic deviations in sex ratio may be adaptive in the face of the prevailing environmental or physiological cues experienced by the mother; yet some theoretical and mechanistic hypotheses remainExpand

Increased blubber cortisol in ice-entrapped beluga whales (Delphinapterusleucas)
Entrapments of whales in sea ice occur occasionally in the Arctic and often last several weeks or months, resulting in emaciation or death of whales. These events provide a unique opportunity forExpand

Body fluid volume regulation in elasmobranch fish.
This review addresses an often overlooked aspect of elasmobranch osmoregulation, i.e., control of body fluid volume. More specifically the review addresses the impact of changes in blood volume inExpand
