WHILE the ability of the freshwater teleost to control body fluid electrolyte composition has been appreciated primarily in terms of neuromuscular and related membrane-dependent phenomena, an increasing body of evidence points to an equally important role in the regulation of intermediary metabolism1. Control of water-electrolyte balance in these animals involves adjustment of a variety of passive and metabolically-dependent transfer processes operating at phase boundaries within the body fluid… CONTINUE READING
