Endurance exercise training in the fast and slow muscles of a teleost fish (Pollachius virens)

1. The recruitment of muscle fibre types has been investigated in the coalfish (Pollachius virens) using electromyography. Red trunk muscles were active at all swimming speeds examined (0.25–3.6 lengths/s). Interestingly, white fibres were recruited at 0.8–2.0 lengths/s providing evidence that this muscle type is also used during sustained activity. 2. The effect of endurance exercise training on muscle fibre size and enzymes of energy metabolism has also been investigated. Fish were exercised… CONTINUE READING
