The relationships of resting metabolism per unit mass of body to gill and body surface areas were examined by measuring gill, body surface and fin areas of carp ranging from 0-0016 to 2250g. There was a triphasic allometry for the relationship between gill area and body mass: during the prelarval (0-0016-0-003 g) and postlarval (0-003-0-2g) stages there was a positive allometry (slopes of 7-066 and 1-222, respectively), during the juvenile and later stages (0-2—2250 g) there was a negative… CONTINUE READING
