The purpose of this investigation was to explore the ontogeny of certain respiratory responses of rainbow trout. Adult trout respond to hypoxia with an increase in the flow of water over the respiratory surfaces, and with a reflex bradycardia (Holeton & Randall, 1967). When adult rainbow trout are exposed to 5% carbon monoxide (CO) and thus rendered anoxaemic while at the same time their arterial blood and the environmental water are at a high POj, they do not show the reflex bradycardia.
