Fig. 23. Changes in plasma osmolality after transfer of mature chum salmon from seawater (SW) to freshwater (FW) or those maintained in SW (SW-SW). Data are expressed as means ± S.E.M.. The numbers of fish used are as follows: SW fish caught in the bay (day 0), n = 7; SW fish that survived until day 3 but died by day 5 (d), n = 4; SW fish survived by day 5 (j), n = 3; and FW fish (s), n = 5. ***p < 0.001, Significantly different from the initial level.

Biol., 129, 1997, 247­253, Reduced hypoosmoregulatory ability and alteration of gill chloride cell distribution in mature chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) migrating upstream for spawning, Uchida et al., Fig. 1.
