Tolerance of roach for modified water mineralization levels and temperatures expressed by biochemical indicators


Changes in the activity of Na+/K+-ATPase, lactate dehydrogenase, and succinate dehydrogenase in the white muscles and gill petals of roach, Rutilus rutilus (L), were studied for the combined actions of water mineralization and water temperature. It was established that decreased mineralization to 260.0 mg dm-3 and increased water temperature to 32°C increased aerobic processes in roach tissues. A sharp increase in water temperature and changes in water mineralization significantly affected the tolerance and physiological state of fish and could impact their abundance in waterbodies.
