Respiratory Physiology of Intestinal Air Breathing in the Teleost Fish Misgurxus Axgcillicaudatus

Abstract

The Japanese weatherloaeh (Misgmnus anguillicaudatus Cantor) can exchange gases both with water, via gills and skin, and with air, via the posterior region of the alimentary canal (intestine). Air breathing occurs by unidirectional ventilation of the alimentary canal with air taken in at the mouth and simultaneous expulsion of intestinal gas from the vent… (More)
