Cutaneous oxygen uptake and its relation to skin blood perfusion and ambient salinity in the plaice, Pleuronectes platessa.

Abstract

Oxygen uptake across plaice skin was unaffected by temporary arrest of skin blood flow. This indicates that oxygen taken up across the skin is consumed by the skin itself. Weight specific rate of O2-consumption of skin is estimated to be 1.7-1.9 times that of the entire fish. Total resting O2-consumption increased from 0.43 to 0.58 mg X kg-1 X min-1 when… (More)
