Morphofunctional features of ionocytes in Japanese eel Anguilla japonica leptocephali acclimated to half-diluted and full-strength seawater

Abstract

Wild anguillid eel larvae inhabit the ocean during their early life stages and never experience low-salinity water until the glass eel stage. The larvae show less mortality in half-diluted seawater than in full-strength seawater in captivity; however, physiological influences of environmental salinity on eel larvae have not been clarified. In this study, we… (More)
