We tested the hypothesis that the physiological strategy for acclimating to low body temperature is similar among closely related fish. Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), green sunfish (Lepomis cyanellus), bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus), black crappie (Pomonix nigromaculatus), and white crappie (Pomonix annularis), all members of the family Centrarchidae, were acclimated to 5° and 25°C. Morphometric variables (total mass, total length, organ masses) and enzyme activities… Expand
Physiological Disturbances and Overwinter Mortality of Largemouth Bass from Different Latitudes
TLDR
Latitudinal variation in physiological responses to cold stressors may influence overwinter survival of largemouth bass and the ability of a fish species to exist over large geographic areas. Expand
The role of winter phenology in shaping the ecology of freshwater fish and their sensitivities to climate change
TLDR
If the zoogeographic distribution of a species covers a broad range of winter conditions, local populations may exhibit differences in their winter survival strategies that reflect adaptation to local conditions, and these strategies will play a significant role in the overall responses of these fish populations and their communities to climate change.

Allometric scaling in centrarchid fish: origins of intra- and inter-specific variation in oxidative and glycolytic enzyme levels in muscle
SUMMARY The influence of body size on metabolic rate, muscle enzyme activities and the underlying patterns of mRNA for these enzymes were explored in an effort to explain the genetic basis ofExpand
Winter in water: Differential responses and the maintenance of biodiversity
TLDR
It is argued that winter periods of reduced temperature and light could play an underappreciated role in mediating the coexistence of species, and if winter is a driver of niche differences that weaken competition among species, then shrinking winter periods could threaten coexistence by tipping the scales in favor of certain sets of species over others.

Winter in water: differential responses and the maintenance of biodiversity.
TLDR
It is argued that winter periods of reduced temperature and light could play an underappreciated role in mediating the coexistence of species, and if winter is a driver of niche differences that weaken competition between, relative to within species, then shrinking winter periods could threaten coexistence by tipping the scales in favour of certain sets of species over others.

Chapter 9 Winter biology of centrarchid fishes
Temperate latitudes experience a predictable annual cycle of alternating warm and cold periods that can result in below freezing conditions, ice cover, and alterations to aquatic habitats thatExpand
Temperature acclimation alters oxidative capacities and composition of membrane lipids without influencing activities of enzymatic antioxidants or susceptibility to lipid peroxidation in fish muscle
TLDR
Increased oxidative capacity, coupled with elevated PUFA content in mitochondria from cold-acclimated animals did not impact LPO susceptibility when measured with C11-BODIPY, and the apparent mismatch between oxidative capacity and enzymatic antioxidants following temperature acclimation will be addressed.

Juvenile crappie growth and bioenergetics: implications for management using blacknose crappie
TLDR
This thesis evaluates growth-related differences among juvenile black, white, and blacknose crappies in both experimental ponds and the laboratory and observed superior growth characteristics of blacknosed crappie in the laboratory, as they exhibited higher relative growth rates and food conversion efficiencies than black and white Crappie. Expand
Origins of variation in muscle cytochrome c oxidase activity within and between fish species
TLDR
These studies argue against a simple temperature-dependent mitochondrial response ubiquitous in fish, and suggest that pathways which control mitochondrial content in fish may differ in important ways from those of the better studied mammals. Expand
Effect of water temperature on laboratory swimming performance and natural activity levels of adult largemouth bass
TLDR
It was found that laboratory- and field-based measurements of swimming per- formance and voluntary activity resulted in similar general seasonal trends, though each measurement assessed a different swimming type. Expand

Phylogenetic Analysis of Thermal Acclimation of the Glycolytic Enzymes in the Genus Fundulus
TLDR
The presence of acclimation responses in all the glycolytic enzymes in the heart ventricle of five species in the teleost genus Fundulus and the compensatory changes all occur in the Atlantic species and may be a mechanism for species to expand their ranges. Expand
Temperature compensation in two centrarchid fishes: Do winter-quiescent fish undergo cellular temperature compensation?
TLDR
Heart ventricle citrate synthase activity and ventricular weight showed temperature compensation in the smallmouth bass but not in the green sunfish, and data do not suggest a correlation between degree of cellular temperature compensation and degree of coldwater activity for these two centrarchids. Expand
Seasonal Variations in the Temperature Acclimation Response of the Channel Catfish, Ictalurus punctatus
TLDR
All liver enzymes, even those that showed marginal acclimation on a protein basis, showed positive acclimations when activity was expressed on a whole-liver basis, and liver lactate dehydrogenase activity showed little or no positive compensation at any time the year. Expand
Some Pathways of Energy Metabolism Are Cold Adapted in Antarctic Fishes
TLDR
Data suggest significant metabolic cold adaptation of aerobic energy metabolism reliant upon fatty fuels in polar species, but a lack of such adaptation in pathways of carbohydrate metabolism in Temperate Zone fishes. Expand

The results of this study suggest that morphological and physiological correlates of swimming performance in juvenile largemouth bass are profoundly influenced by seasonal variation. Expand
Temperature induced variation in the distribution of different types of muscle fibre in the goldfish (Carassius auratus)
TLDR
Goldfish acclimated to environmental temperatures of 3 °C, 18 °C and 31 °C resulted in a shift to a more aerobic type of metabolism, particularly in the red and pink fibres, and biochemical studies provided evidence for different kinetic forms of Mg2+Ca2+ myofibrillar ATPase at different environmental temperatures.

Metabolic responses of striped bass (Morone saxatilis) to temperature acclimation. II. Alterations in metabolic carbon sources and distributions of fiber types in locomotory muscle
TLDR
The results indicate an increasing reliance on aerobic metabolism of fat in the swimming musculature at cold acclimation temperatures, conserved by an increase in the relative proportion of red fibers, and an enhanced capacity for energy supply in the red muscle by oxidative metabolism of stored lipid.

TLDR
The disproportionality in temperature-sensitivities of these two processes leads to an approximately 50% net increase in the concentration of cytochrome c during acclimation. Expand
Effect of acute and chronic temperature transition on enzymes of cardiac metabolism in white perch (Morone americana), yellow perch (Perca flavescens), and smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieui)
TLDR
It is suggested that maximal fatty acid oxidation is conserved better than glucose oxidation during a warm to cold transition during the warm-acclimated period. Expand
Evolutionary Physiology of Closely Related Taxa: Analyses of Enzyme Expression
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms affecting adaptive variation in enzyme expression appear to be readily altered and may vary within a species or between acclimation conditions, so studies among closely related organisms are more likely to identify the specific molecular or biochemical changes responsible for adaptive variation.
