EVERAL S years ago it was reported by Smith (I) that the acidity of the urine in both the marine dogfish and sculpin is fixed at about PH 5.7 and cannot be changed by the intravenous administration of sodium bicarbonate, alkaline phosphate or phlorizin. The suggestion was then made that this fixation of urine PH might be related to the fact that in the marine fishes the urine contains large quantities of magnesium which precipitates as Mg(OH)2 or MgHP0403H20 (2) if the PH exceeds 6.0.
