Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) were exposed for 36 days to water from the acidified (pH 5.2) Fossbekk River (Norway) with 50 micro x L(-1) of aluminium (Al) added as AlCl(3), or to circumneutral water (pH 6.6) from Ims River (Norway). Food consumption, cardiac output, swimming activity, and growth rate were measured to determine the effects of sublethal levels of Al in acidic water on the bioenergetics of the fish. Food consumption was reduced in acidic water and Al during the first 12 days, but… CONTINUE READING
