Cardiac output (CO), heart rate (HR), stroke volume (SV), dorsal aortic blood flow (DABF), dorsal aortic blood pressure (PDA) and plasma electrolytes were monitored in stanniectomized and sham-operated freshwater eels over a 3-week period; branchial shunting and systemic resistance (RSYS) were estimated. DABF was significantly reduced by 45% from 11.72 +/- 0.48 (control) to 6.55 +/- 0.41 (n = 6; day 21) ml.min-1.kg-1 within 3 weeks after the removal of the corpuscles of Stannius.
