SYNOPSIS. Studies on the relation of temperature to tolerance, preference, metabolic rate, performance, circulation, and growth of sockeye salmon all point to a physiological optimum in the region of 15°C. Natural occurrence is limited in time and space at temperatures above 18°C despite being able to tolerate 24°C. Forms of physiological inadequacy can be demonstrated which account for such restrictions in distribution. Predictive power for locating and accounting for concentrations of young… 

The Role of Behavior in Temperature Acclimation and Tolerance in Ectotherms

TLDR
The physiological and ecological significance of behaviorally mediated heat-hardening may be greater than previously realized and suggest new approaches for future study.

The effect of temperature on swimming performance and oxygen consumption in adult sockeye (Oncorhynchus nerka) and coho (O. kisutch) salmon stocks

TLDR
It is concluded that high-caliber respirometry can be performed in a field setting and that stock-specific differences in swimming performance of adult salmon may be important for understanding upstream migration energetics and abilities.

Plasticity in habitat use determines metabolic response of fish to global warming in stratified lakes

TLDR
A coupled lake physics and bioenergetics-based foraging model is used to evaluate how the plasticity in habitat use modifies the seasonal metabolic response of two sympatric cold-water fishes under a global warming scenario for the year 2100.

Cyclic temperatures influence growth efficiency and biochemical body composition of vertically migrating fish

TLDR
Fish performing DVM may benefit from predation avoidance without compromising their metabolic balance and hence growth rates, and the results suggest that the evolution of DVM is a multi-faceted process with no single ultimate explanation.

Thermal preference, critical thermal limits, oxygen routine consumption and active metabolic scope of Macrobrachium tenellum (Smith, 1871) maintained at different acclimation temperatures

TLDR
The results obtained in the present study are important to determine the optimum conditions in which M. tenellum needs to live in the natural environment and may partially explain their wide distribution pattern along the Mexican Pacific Ocean littoral.

Too hot to handle? Using movement to alleviate effects of elevated temperatures in a benthic elasmobranch, Hemiscyllium ocellatum

TLDR
As ocean temperatures continue to rise, the distribution and abundance patterns for epaulette sharks and many other coral reef species are likely to change if trade-offs associated with acclimation outweigh the benefits of moving to more favourable habitats.

Effects of Temperature on Growth of Zooplankton, and the Adaptive Value of Vertical Migration

TLDR
It is shown that Bělehradek's temperature function gives a close fit to size and development rate of several species of zooplankters growing in adequate food supply, although conclusions do not depend on the theoretical content of this equation.

Temperature Tolerance in Young Pacific Salmon, Genus Oncorhynchus

TLDR
A fanning-out of the opercula was shown to be directly correlated with the onset of death from a low temperature and mixed lethal effects at low temperatures were demonstrated and found to be influenced by the size of the fish and by the salinity of the water.

The Relation of Temperature to the Seaward Migration of Young Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka)

The period of seaward migration of young sockeye from Cultus lake each spring is inversely correlated with temperature conditions prevailing during the months immediately preceding. Correlating

The analysis of several hundred stomachs of sockeye salmon taken from Cultus lake at all seasons shows that pelagic plankton crustaceans are practically the only food of the fingerlings, and are the

The Respiratory Metabolism and Swimming Performance of Young Sockeye Salmon

TLDR
Rate of replacement of oxygen debt following fatigue was determined by tracing the return to a resting state of metabolism, and confirmed by re-tests at fatigue velocities, and in most instances the rate declined logarithmically with time.

GROWTH RATE AND BODY COMPOSITION OF FINGERLING SOCHEYE SALMON ONCORHYNCHUS MESHA IN RELATION TO TEMPERATURE AND RATION SIZE

TLDR
The growth of young sockeye salmon was studied at temperatures ranging from 1 to 24 C in relation to rations of 0, 1.5, 3, 4, 5, and 6% of dry body weight per day, and at an "excess" ration.

From 1,949 sockeye salmon females in the run of 1926, 8,770,000 eggs were available. Of these approximately 1,174,000 (13.4%) were lost through 261 females dying before stripping. Since part of thi...

Effect of Temperature on the Rate of Gastric Digestion in Finger ling Sockeye Salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka

TLDR
By means of serial slaughter the rate of gastric digestion in yearling sockeye salmon was studied at approximately 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 23 C, and the ash-free dry weight was determined and expressed as a fraction of the dry weight of the fish.

Bioenergetics of the Dickcissel, Spiza americana

TLDR
This work has demonstrated that the maintenance of a satisfactory energy balance is reflected in the distribution of species, in the adjustment to the annual march of temperature and photoperiod, and in the variation in the population of species.

COMPENSATION FOR TEMPERATURE IN THE METABOLISM AND ACTIVITY OF POIKILOTHERMS

Many poikilothermal animals exhibit in their metabolism or activity some degree of independence of their temperature. In the general case this is regarded as reflecting a compensation rather than a
