The sheepshead minnow, Cyprinodon variegatus is a euryhaline fish that inhabits estuaries and coastal marshes where it encounters a wide range of salinities. Many of these areas also have elevated levels of contaminants, creating the potential for toxic ions to interfere with the uptake of ions for osmoregulation. To determine whether the effect of copper on osmoregulatory activity is dependent on the osmotic conditions that individuals have been living at, fish were acclimated for 14 days to 2… CONTINUE READING
