The mechanism underlying the decrease in aerobic scope in fish at warm temperatures is not fully understood and is the focus of this research. Our study examined oxygen uptake and delivery in resting, swimming and recovering sockeye salmon while water temperature was acutely increased from 15 degrees C to 24 degrees C in 2 degrees C h(-1) increments. Fish swam at a constant speed during the temperature change. By simultaneously measuring oxygen consumption (M(O(2))), cardiac output (Q) and the… CONTINUE READING
