To evaluate the metabolic differences between Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar ) parr and smolts and the effect of rearing environment, we examined metabolic enzyme activity in white muscle, liver, and heart in streamand hatcheryreared juveniles. Spring increases in gill Na +,K+-ATPase (3.5-fold) and cardiosomatic index (37–69%) and decreases in condition factor (~17%) occurred in smolts, but not in parr. White muscle phosphofructokinase (PFK) increased during spring and was 3.6-fold higher in… CONTINUE READING
