    • Abstract


      An attempt is made to study the oxygen consumption, CO2 output and the nitrogen excretion of the freshwater mulletRhinomugil corsula. It is found that whereas the O2 consumption, the CO2 output and the respiratory quotient decreased with increase in the duration of exercise, the NH3-N and total-N excretion showed the opposite trend.
