The Physiological Basis for Altered Na and Cl Movements across the Gills of Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in Alkaline (pH 5 9.5) Water

Abstract

To test the hypothesis that internal ion imbalances at high pH are caused by altered branchial ion transporting capacity and permeability, radiotracers (Na and Cl) were used to measure ion movements across the gills of intact rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) during 3 d exposure to pH 9.5. At control pH (pH 8.0), the trout were in net ion balance, but by… (More)
