The effects of anoxia were studied in the whole brain of three fish species, each with a specific metabolic strategy for anoxic survival. Goldfish (Carassius auratus) combine a lactate to ethanol conversion with a metabolic depression, tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) use an anaerobic glycolysis with the strategy of metabolic depression, and carp (Cyprinw… (More)
