Respiratory metabolism of the striped mullet as an assay of low level stresses in Galveston Bay.
MetadataShow full item record
The open waters of four Galveston Bay stations had a tendency to suppress the respiratory metabolism of the striped mullet. Except for the winter Trinity Bay water, there were no particular areal or seasonal patterns of metabolic depression. The levels of metabolic depression, compared to controls over all the seasons and stations, except for Trinity Bay station in winter, had a conservative average about 10 percent below control data.
