...James M. Wakeling SUMMARY Muscle fibres have a range of contractile properties from fast to slow. Traditional understanding of muscle fibre recruitment suggests that the slower fibres within a mixed muscle are used for all contractions including those at rapid speeds. However, mechanical arguments...

.... For example, FN max in Chaenocephalus aceratus (12 700±300, mean ± s . e . m ., N =18) was only 7.7% of the value found in Eleginops maclovinus (164 000±4100, N =17), which reaches a similar maximum length (85 cm). Postembryonic muscle fibre recruitment in teleost fish normally involves stratified followed...

... environment on seawater growth was accepted for fibre recruitment but rejected for the rate of hypertrophic growth. We tested the hypothesis that freshwater treatment would alter the rate of muscle fibre recruitment and hypertrophy in seawater. In the first seawater sample, muscle TCA, D 50 and D max...
