Smoltification is a transformation that occurs in some species of salmon, during which solitary fish in fresh water become schooling fish and migrate to the sea. This process is accompanied by large increases in plasma T4. T4 secretion rate and other parameters of T4 metabolism in juvenile coho salmon were estimated by applying kinetic analyses to measurements of the disappearance of injected T4 radiotracer from plasma. Studies were performed at the beginning (March) and end (May) of the… CONTINUE READING
