Data from: Whole-body endothermy in a mesopelagic fish, the opah, Lampris guttatus

Nicholas C. Wegner, Owyn E. Snodgrass, Heidi Dewar & John R. Hyde
Endothermy (the metabolic production and retention of heat to warm body temperature above ambient) enhances physiological function, and whole-body endothermy generally sets mammals and birds apart from other animals. Here, we describe a whole-body form of endothermy in a fish, the opah (Lampris guttatus), that produces heat through the constant “flapping” of wing-like pectoral fins and minimizes heat loss through a series of counter-current heat exchangers within its gills. Unlike other fish, opah distribute warmed...
