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.
