Experiments indicate 30–31°C as the upper thermal limit for perch since, irrespective of the level of their temperature acclimatization, they cannot survive hotter conditions for more than a few hours. Perch that were gradually heated in lethal temperature tests indulged in agitated exploratory behaviour as they neared their lethal levels of temperature. Just below the lethal, balance and coordination became seriously impaired, and the final phases of activity were marked by violent and… CONTINUE READING
