Abstract

Summarizes current knowledge on the acute toxic mechanisms of pure acid stress to adult fish. External acidity has proven to be an exceptionally useful probe of normal physiological processes in freshwater teleosts. Recent findings on the physiological responses to long term, low level acid stress, and acid-aluminium interactions are described. -from Author
