Traditionally lower and upper temperature tolerances of fishes have been quantified in the laboratory via three different experimental approaches: the Fry or incipient lethal temperature (ILT), critical thermal (CTM) and chronic lethal (CLM) methodologies. Although these three experimental laboratory approaches generate endpoints which are quantitatively expressed as a temperature, are determined experimentally with random samples of fish acclimated to specific temperatures, and involve both… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Thermal tolerance of European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) juveniles acclimated to three temperature levels
TLDR
The current data show that the sea bass population possesses acclimation response ratio (ARR) values (0.25–0.27) similar to some tropical species, suggesting that cold winter temperatures may not pose danger during the culture of European sea bass in deep ponds or high water exchange rate systems. Expand
Effect of the Rate of Temperature Increase of the Dynamic Method on the Heat Tolerance of Fishes
TLDR
The results indicate the need for caution in the extrapolation of thermal tolerance data when assessing the tolerance of organisms to environmental phenomena that vary in their rates of warming. Expand
Predicted impacts of climate warming on aerobic performance and upper thermal tolerance of six tropical freshwater fishes spanning three continents
TLDR
The results show that each species had some ability to perform at temperatures up to 4°C above current maxima, yet also displayed certain areas of concern for their long-term welfare, suggesting the need for more species-specific studies of adaptive capacity to climate change-related challenges. Expand
Thermal tolerance and preferred temperature range of juvenile meagre acclimated to four temperatures.
TLDR
The study suggests that meagre is unable to respond to low and high temperature variation in aquaculture facilities or its natural habitats. Expand
Upper Temperature Tolerance of Loach Minnow under Acute, Chronic, and Fluctuating Thermal Regimes
TLDR
The upper lethal temperature of loach minnow Rhinichthys cobitis ranged between 32°C and 38°C, depending on the method and exposure time; however, temperatures as low as 28°C resulted in slowed growth compared with the control groups. Expand
Comparison of Upper Thermal Tolerances of Native and Nonnative Fish Species in Arizona
TLDR
Among the species acclimated to 25°C, desert pupfish Cyprinodon macularius, western mosquitofish Gambusia affinis, and Gila topminnow Poeciliopsis occidentalis were most tolerant to high temperature. Expand
Thermal tolerance and standard metabolic rate of juvenile gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) acclimated to four temperatures.

TLDR
This study shows that gilthead seabream tolerates a relatively narrow temperature range, and consequently, a low capacity for acclimatisation to survive in aquatic systems characterised by temperature variations. Expand
Response of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) from different thermal environments to increased water temperature
TLDR
It is speculated that behavioral modifications, lack of adequate time for genetic divergence, or the robust genetic plasticity of largemouth bass explain the lack of difference between treatment groups, suggesting differences due to adaptation to different thermal environments. Expand
Upper Thermal Tolerance and Heat Shock Protein Response of Juvenile American Shad (Alosa sapidissima)
Juvenile American shad (Alosa sapidissima) experience a wide range of temperatures in rivers before migrating to the ocean. Temperatures in these freshwater environments can vary greatly spatially,Expand
Thermal tolerance and potential impacts of climate change on coastal and estuarine organisms
TLDR
This study showed that the most vulnerable organisms to sea warming were those that occur in thermally unstable environments because despite their high CTMax values, they live closer to their thermal limits and have limited acclimation plasticity. Expand

Behavioral and Physiological Responses to Temperature in the Desert Pupfish Cyprinodon macularius
TLDR
The data presented here for the desert pupfish Cyprinodon macularius illustrate well the intense natural selection for high temperature tolerance that occurs in desert habitats, and that temperature tolerance is of primary importance ecologically to these populations. Expand

TLDR
The physiological and ecological significance of behaviorally mediated heat-hardening may be greater than previously realized and suggest new approaches for future study. Expand

TLDR
A reference base of relative hypoxia and hyperthermia tolerance rankings for many of the common fish species that inhabit small streams in Missouri is developed and the influences of geographic variation and of fish size on these tolerances are investigated. Expand

Critical Thermal Maxima and Minima (CTMax and CTMin) were determined for four lizard species which represent a wide range of environmental and behavioral diversity, thereby defining the range ofExpand
Evaluation of the critical thermal maximum for determining thermal tolerance of freshwater fish
TLDR
Recommendations are that test fish should be small, and relatively uniform in size and condition, and final loss of ability to return upright should be the loss of equilibrium criterion in CTM determinations, and linearity should be maintained in time-temperature distributions of the heating rate.

Critical Thermal Maxima in Salamanders
TLDR
This method allows a quantitative determination of thermal tolerance by measuring the area of the polygon, the units being in square degrees, and the ultimate upper and lower incipient lethal temperatures can be determined by this method. Expand

TLDR
Fishes (Gillichthys mirabilis) having different temperature histories were subjected to KCN, to boiled sea water, and to temperatures high or low enough to be lethal, finding that death in both KCN and in boiled water was speedy in proportion to the temperature. Expand

Thermal tolerance polygons are now available for eight species of salmonids and show that the highest temperature limits for feeding and survival are those recorded for juvenile Atlantic salmon. Expand
