...) and SO 4 2– -enriched seawater (30 mmol l –1 ). Unlike Mozambique tilapia and chum salmon, Japanese eels maintained higher plasma SO 4 2– concentration in freshwater (6.2±2.3 mmol l –1 ) than in seawater (0.7±0.1 mmol l –1 ). We then analyzed the whole-body SO 4 2– budget using 35 SO 4 2– . 35 SO 4 2...

...Vincent van Ginneken; Erik Antonissen; Ulrike K. Müller; Ronald Booms; Ep Eding; Johan Verreth; Guido van den Thillart SUMMARY One of the mysteries of the animal kingdom is the long-distance migration(5000–6000 km) of the European eel Anguilla anguilla L. from the coasts of Europe to its spawning...

...-transporting epithelium,the intestine of the euryhaline teleost Anguilla anguilla . Eel intestinal epithelium, when symmetrically bathed with Ringer solution,develops a net Cl - current giving rise to a negative transepithelial potential at the basolateral side of the epithelium. The eel intestinal epithelium...

...Eric D. Tytell SUMMARY Simultaneous swimming kinematics and hydrodynamics are presented for American eels, Anguilla rostrata , swimming at speeds from 0.5 to 2 L s -1 . Body outlines and particle image velocimetry (PIV)data were collected using two synchronized high-speed cameras, and an empirical...

...Eric D. Tytell; George V. Lauder SUMMARY Eels undulate a larger portion of their bodies while swimming than many other fishes, but the hydrodynamic consequences of this swimming mode are poorly understood. In this study, we examine in detail the hydrodynamics of American eels ( Anguilla rostrata...

...Gary B. Gillis ABSTRACT Eels ( Anguilla rostrata ) are known to make occasional transitory excursions into the terrestrial environment. While on land, their locomotor kinematics deviate drastically from that observed during swimming. In this study, electromyographic (EMG) recordings were made from...
