Pressure resistance of aerobic metabolism in eels from different water environments.

Abstract : Eels from different locations were tested comparing their energetic capacities to migrate by studying muscle (red and white) aerobic metabolism. As the migratory activity corresponds to a lengthy swimming activity at depth, their pressure resistance was evaluated by considering fish response to compression, mitochondrial respiration measured under pressure (101 ATA) and cytochrome c oxidase after 3 days under pressure. The results show that only fish from two of the sites have the metabolic capacities to cope with the high pressure encountered during migration.
