Fig. 31. Survival rates (A) and blood osmolality (B) in fugu transferred to freshwater (FW) and 1, 5, 10, 15 and 25% seawater (SW), directly from SW (open columns) and after preacclimation in 25% SW for seven days (filled columns). Asterisks indicate significant differences (p < 0.05) in blood osmolality, compared with the values in fish transferred directly from 100% SW.
