We determined aerial and aquatic oxygen uptake rates (&Mdot;o(2)) of Periophthalmodon schlosseri at rest and after exhaustive exercise at 30 degrees C. Resting &Mdot;o(2) in air (3.16 +/- 0.10 [SE] &mgr;mol/g/hr) was significantly higher than that in air saturated water (2.41 +/- 0.06 &mgr;mol/g/hr). When the fish was placed in air after 2 min exhaustive exercise, &Mdot;o(2) immediately increased about 2.5 times, thereby repaying oxygen debt of 5.0 &mgr;mol/g. In contrast, &Mdot;o(2) failed to show any significant elevation from the resting level as long as the fish was confined in water after exercise. However, when the fish was subsequently emerged, &Mdot;o(2) did increase above the resting level, amounting to an excess oxygen uptake of 5.5 &mgr;mol/g. These results demonstrated that the gas transport system of P. schlosseri is better adapted to air breathing and the mode of adaptation limited the capability for water breathing. J. Exp.
