The filling of the gills and head vascular space of a teleost fish was measured in vitro by perfusing an isolated head of a trout with a Ringer solution containing 131I-labeled human serum albumin. The presence of epinephrine in the Ringer solution significantly increased afferent (ventral aortic) flow rate and efferent (dorsal aorta) flow rate, whereas branchial venous system circulation was reduced. When perfused with an epinephrine-free Ringer, the branchial vascular space appears 5-6 times… CONTINUE READING
