Physiological responses to acute temperature increase in European eels Anguilla anguilla infected with Anguillicola crassus.

Abstract

The swimbladder parasite, Anguillicola crassus has infected, and spread rapidly, through European eel Anguilla anguilla (L.) populations over the past 20 to 25 yr. Our aim in the present studies was to elucidate whether the presence of A. crassus in these eels alters their rapid physiological responses to an acute temperature increase, compared to the… (More)
