... cardiorespiratory responses to environmental hypercarbia in the air-breathing fish, Hoplerythrinus unitaeniatus (jeju). Fish were exposed to graded hypercarbia (1, 2.5, 5, 10 and 20% CO 2 ) and also to graded levels of environmental acidosis (pH ~7.0, 6.0, 5.8, 5.6, 5.3 and 4.7) equal to the pH levels...

...D. J. McKenzie; H. A. Campbell; E. W. Taylor; M. Micheli; F. T. Rantin; A. S. Abe SUMMARY The jeju is a teleost fish with bimodal respiration that utilizes a modified swim bladder as an air-breathing organ (ABO). Like all air-breathing fish studied to date, jeju exhibit pronounced changes in heart...

... the possibility that that the evolutionary loss of hypoxic bradycardia may have coincided with some forms of air breathing in fishes. Experiments are needed to test some of these possibilities. Ultimately, any potential benefit of hypoxic bradycardia must be placed in the proper context of myocardial oxygen...

...% of air saturation, and that it can tolerate at least 2 h at even lower O 2 levels. Furthermore, during air exposure, which was tolerated for more than 3 h, it upheld a rate of O 2 consumption that was 60% of that in water. The hypoxia tolerance and air breathing abilities enables this fish to stay...

...BRIAN R. McMAHON; WARREN W. BURGGREN The Japanese weatherloaeh ( Misgurnus anguillicaudatus Cantor) can exchange gases both with water, via gills and skin, and with air, via the posterior region of the alimentary canal (intestine). Air breathing occurs by unidirectional ventilation...
