Abstract

1. 1. Bone resorption was investigated in the acellular-boned Lepomis macrochirus and the cellular-boned Notemigonus crysoleucas by removing scales from one side of the body. 2. 2. Chemical analyses and tetracycline pre-labelling following scale removal showed that bone calcium and phosphate decreased proportionately, and serum calcium increased in both species, which indicated that bone resorption occurred. 3. 3. Rate of bone resorption was similar in the two species examined. 4. 4. Bone carbonate and potassium increased along with bone weight in both species following scale removal, whereas sodium and magnesium content remained unchanged. 5. 5. In resorption, calcium phosphate is removed and calcium carbonate remains in the bone.
