Abstract:

Fundulus heteroclitus ventilatory data and water quality were collected from the Transquaking River of Marylands Eastern Shore during a non-Pftesteria piscicida event. It is anticipated that a fish ventilatory model reflecting association with water quality parameters can be used as a surveillance strategy in predicting future P. poscicida and P. piscicida-like events.
