  • Gas exchange, metabolism, ventilation, circulation and acid-base balance in water and air were investigated in Blennius pholis. The rates of gas exchange in water and air were similar with the RQ remaining around 0.8. Aerial gas exchange was equally divided between the head/gills and the tail region. Ventilatory adaptations involved a reduction in rate in air and the mode of ventilation changed from flow-through to tidal, with closed opercula. A transient bradycardia developed on transition to… CONTINUE READING
