Scanning and transmission electron microscopy of the squamose gill-filament epithelium from fresh- and seawater adaptedTilapia

Abstract

The architecture of the gill structure of variousTilapia species was studied in relation to their adaptability to hypersaline media. Using SEM and EM, it was shown that the squamose epithelial cells of the gills have species-typical patterns of ridges on their outer surfaces. These have previously been misinterpreted by other authors as microvilli or… (More)
