Abstract

The importance of the size factor in metabolic studies on fish has been emphasised by Rubner (1924) who found that the oxygen consumption in the pike and in the tench was correlated exponentially with the body weight of the fish. More recently, Busnel, Drilhon and Raffy (1946) have investigated the oxygen consumption of the fry and alevins of the rainbow trout in waters of varying salinity; their results indicate that the salinity of the external medium is a second decisive factor influencing respiration.
