We examined the relationship between thermal tolerance, measured as critical thermal maximum (CT(max)), and aspects of the heat-shock response in tidepool sculpins (Oligocottus maculosus) acclimated to constant laboratory temperatures or acclimatized to field conditions. The CT(max) of fish laboratory acclimated to 6°, 13°, and 20°C were 27.6° ± 0.1°C, 29.5° ± 0.1°C, and 30.8° ± 0.1°C, respectively, increasing linearly by 0.2°C for each 1°C increase in acclimation temperature. The CT(max) of… CONTINUE READING
