The respiratory physiology, heart rates and metabolic rates of two captive juvenile male harbour porpoises (both 28 kg) were measured using a rapid-response respiratory gas analysis system in the laboratory. Breath-hold durations in the laboratory (12 ± 0.3 s, mean ± SEM) were shorter than field observations, although a few breath-holds of over 40 s were… CONTINUE READING
