Combined effects of hypoxia or elevated temperature and Deepwater Horizon crude oil exposure on juvenile mahi-mahi swimming performance.

This study examined potential interactive effects of co-exposure to Deepwater Horizon (DWH) crude oil (∼30 μg L-1 ΣPAHs) for 24 h and either hypoxia (2.5 mg O2 L-1; 40% O2 saturation) or elevated temperature (30 °C) on the swimming performance of juvenile mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus). Additionally, effects of shorter duration exposures to equal or higher… (More)
