The marble goby, Oxyeleotris marmorata, considered a freshwater fish, was able to hypoosmoregulate successfully during 14 days of acclimation to seawater (30 per thousand) following 6 days of progressive increase in salinity. In seawater, there were slight perturbations in plasma osmolality and ionic concentrations, and significant increases in contents of some free amino acids, which presumably acted as osmolytes, in tissues. The muscle glutamine content increased significantly during seawater… CONTINUE READING
