The effects of reduced gill surface area on gas transfer in the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).

Alejandra E. Julio
The total functional surface area of the gills is a key component in gas exchange and any reduction would predictably limit both oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide excretion. But one might also hypothesise that under these conditions the fish might compensate. A reduction of 15, 30 and 40% of total anatomical gill surface area in rainbow trout was accomplished by the ligation of 1, 2 and 3 gill arches, respectively. With the use of an...
