... other actively swimming shark species. The metabolic enzymes measured were citrate synthase(CS), an index of aerobic capacity, and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), an index of anaerobic capacity. WM creatine phosphokinase (CPK) activity, an index of rapid ATP production during burst swimming, was also...

... to 45μmolg −1 with increased fish size (= L 0.36 , where L is fish length). Total white muscle lactate production, including changes in muscle mass, scaled as L 3.52 . A scaling comparison of total anaerobic capacity with theoretically predicted power requirements indicated decreased burst swimming...

... mass (slope=9.72 mmoll −1 logM −1 ; mass M in kg), indicating a greater anaerobic capacity in larger animals. Several large crocodiles had [lactate − ] in excess of SOmmoll −1 . 5. Blood pH decreased with mass (slope=0.163 pH units log M −1 ) and reached 6.6 in the largest animals. One animal remained...
