MO2 near Ucrit in rainbow trout
Yangfan Zhang and his collaborators from University of British Columbia, Canada, used a 10 L Loligo® swim tunnel to assess the dynamic nature of ṀO2active near Ucrit in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The researchers used various sampling windows and introduced an iterative algorithm which generated a 23 % higher peak ṀO2active compared to conventional ṀO2 sampling rates and interval regression analysis of ṀO2active.
In the current version of AutoResp, calculating ṀO2active near Ucrit is also possible by enabling the mode “Closed respirometry” during this critical phase. This mode enables you to get MO2 values on-the-fly for any time interval you prefer!
