Title: Effect of tricaine methanesulfonate on oxygen consumption of juvenile sockeye salmon
Author: Theodore H. Blahm

Volume: 90
Issue: 2
Pages: 226-227

The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of applying a constant-flow respirometer to the study of fish-behavior problems.  The measurement of oxygen consumption of anesthetized and non-anesthetized juvenile sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka was used as a test.  The resulting data yielded information on the effects of tricaine methanesulfonate (MS 222—Sandoz), the anesthetic used, as well as demonstrated the effectiveness of the apparatus.
