When stimulated, the ammocoetes (larvae) of Geotria australis swim continuously at a moderate rate for only approximately 20 min, whereas the downstream migrants (young adults) of this species did not become exhausted following similar swimming activity over the same period. Mean concentrations of muscle glycogen in ammocoetes declined during exercise, but returned to resting levels within 30 min of recovery, whereas those in young adults changed little during the corresponding periods… CONTINUE READING
