...Glenn J. Lurman; Lene H. Petersen; A. Kurt Gamperl SUMMARY The resting and maximum in situ cardiac performance of Newfoundland Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua ) acclimated to 10, 4 and 0°C were measured at their respective acclimation temperatures, and when acutely exposed to temperature changes: i.e...

..., the stimulus that triggers the production of sounds in the lobster's natural habitat is not known. We investigated the influence of two fish that are known to prey on lobsters, cod ( Gadus morhua ) and striped bass ( Morone saxatilis ), on the production of sounds by American lobsters. In addition, we examined...

...L. H. Petersen; A. K. Gamperl SUMMARY Recent in vivo experiments on Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua ) acclimated to chronic hypoxia (6-12 weeks at 10°C; P w O 2 ~8-9 kPa) revealed a considerable decrease in the pumping capacity of the heart. To examine whether this diminished cardiac performance...

...Justin J. Meager; Paolo Domenici; Alex Shingles; Anne Christine Utne-Palm SUMMARY We examined the effect of turbidity (0.5–14 beam attenuation m –1 ) and predator attack speed (150 and 296 cm s –1 ) on escape responses of juvenile cod Gadus morhua in the laboratory. We triggered escape responses...

Webb SUMMARY The kinematics of plaice ( Pleuronectes platessa, L =22.1 cm) and cod ( Gadus morhua, L =25.0 cm, where L is total fish length)swimming at various speeds at the bottom and lifted to heights, h , of 10, 50 and 100 mm by a thin-wire grid were measured. For cod, tailbeat frequency...

...D. M. Webber; R. G. Boutilier; S. R. Kerr; M. J. Smale SUMMARY We report the results of an experiment designed to investigate the feasibility of using differential pressure to estimate the swimming speed and metabolic rate of Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua ). Seven cod were fitted with a miniature...

...LENA SUNDIN; STEFAN NILSSON We have estimated the branchial venous blood flow in the Atlantic cod by direct single-crystal Doppler blood flow measurements in vivo . In the undisturbed animal, this flow amounts to 1.7 ml min −1 kg −1 , which corresponds to about 8 % of the cardiac output. Studies...
