Abstract 1. 1. Tidal fluctuations of salinity were simulated so that ambient salinity decreased from 30 to 10%. and returned to 30%. over a 12-hr period. 2. 2. Perivisceral fluid osmotic and ionic composition of all three echinoderm species declined to a lesser extent than ambient salinity and returned to control values in Pisaster ochraceus and Cucumaria miniata but did not do so in Strongylocentrotus drobachiensis . 3. 3. Perivisceral fluid osmotic shifts were due predominately to ion flux. 4… CONTINUE READING
