Induction of anaesthesia and distribution of the routinely used fish anaesthetic, MS-222 (ethyl m-amino-benzoate methanesulfonate), were monitored in the Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki. As expected from the extreme low metabolic rate of Antarctic fish, induction times were significantly longer than those from rainbow trout. Onset of anaesthesia in the Antarctic fish also failed to correlate with either brain or blood MS-222 concentrations, in contrast to the trends observed in… CONTINUE READING
