Approximately 60% of small 1 45 kg) fish. Large yellowfin tuna were rarely parasitized (5.211 in the dorsal aorta, but showed a high rate (>80%) of infection within other major arteries. The prevalence in small fish varied dramatically with season, dropping suddenly from 66% in June-July 1985 to 11% in August-September 1985. Unparasitized fish caught during AugustSeptember 1985 showed significantly higher condition factors, relative heart weights, and relative liver weights than did… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Form and function of the bulbus arteriosus in yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) and blue marlin (Makaira nigricans): static properties
TLDR
The morphological features that give rise to the special inflation characteristics of the bulbus help to extend flow and maintain pressure during diastole and at large volumes the overall stiffness of the Bulbus increases rapidly. Expand
A revision of Dasyrhynchus Pintner (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha), parasitic in elasmobranch and teleost fishes
TLDR
The genus Dasyrhynchus Pintner is revised and strobilar characters, namely the distribution of testes and the positions of the osmoregulatory canals, distinguish D. giganteus from D. variouncinatus whereas oncotaxy provides no distinguishing features. Expand
Blood volume, plasma volume and circulation time in a high-energy-demand teleost, the yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares)
TLDR
The data imply that circulation time (blood volume/cardiac output) is clearly shorter in yellowfin tuna than in other active teleosts, and high metabolic rates are necessarily correlated with short circulation times. Expand
Parasites as biological indicators of the population biology, migrations, diet, and phylogenetics of fish
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to infectious disease. Expand
VENTRICULAR AND ARTERIAL DYNAMICS OF ANAESTHETISED AND SWIMMING TUNA
TLDR
It is concluded that a ‘Windkessel’ dominates central cardiovascular dynamics of tuna despite heart rates and blood pressures that fall in the mammalian range. Expand

Observations on the Cestode Eubothrium salvelini in Juvenile Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) at Babine Lake, British Columbia
TLDR
Although no proof was found of direct mortality caused by E. salvelini, indirect effects such as inferior growth, poor swimming performance, or aberrant behavior due to large cestode loads may increase host susceptibility to death from other causes. Expand

The biology of a landlocked form of the normally catadromous salmoniform fish Galaxias maculatus (Jenyns). I. Life cycle and origin
TLDR
The geological origin of the complex of lakes in south-western Victoria inhabited by landlocked galaxiid populations is discussed, and an hypothesis concerning theorigin of the Lake Modewarre form from an ancestral population of G. maculatus in the Barwon-Leigh River system is advanced. Expand
Poecilancistrium caryophyllum and other trypanophynch cestode plerocercoids from the musculature of Cynoscion nebulosus and other sciaenid fishes in the Gulf of Mexico.
TLDR
Examination of over 3,000 fish has shown that plerocercoids of Poecilancistrium caryophyllum infect Cynoscion nebulosus, Bairdiella chrysura, Sciaenops ocellata, C. arenarius, Micropogonias undulatus, and Pogonias cromis in Mississippi Sound, suggesting an immune response to challenge infections.
