The interrelated effects of body size and choroid rete development on the ocular partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) of the mainly temperate Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua, and the exclusively polar Greenland cod, G. ogac, were investigated using micro-optode O2 sensors. Due to a difference in geographical distribution, it is hypothesized that G. ogac will possess features favouring visual-metabolic processes in a cold, dark environment. The relative size of the eye was identical between species and… CONTINUE READING
