Metabolic Rates of Juvenile Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks (sphyrna Lewini )

    Abstract

    Oxygen consumption of juvenile scalloped hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini, was measured in a Brett-type ¯ume (volume=635 l) to quantify metabolic rates over a range of aerobic swimming speeds and water temperatures. Oxygen consumption (log transformed) increased at a linear rate with increases in tailbeat frequency and swimming speed. Estimates of standard… (More)
