Sustained swimming at 0.9 BL s(-)(1), where BL is fork body length, following a bout of exhaustive exercise enhanced recovery of metabolite and acid-base status in rainbow trout compared with fish held in still water. The most striking effect of an active recovery was a total absence of the elevation cortisol concentration typically associated with exhaustive exercise. In fish swimming at 0. 9 BL s(-)(1), plasma cortisol levels averaged 20-25 ng ml(-)(1) throughout the 6 h recovery period. In contrast, plasma cortisol increased to a peak level of 128.4+/-11.2 ng ml(-)(1) (mean +/- s.e. m., N=6) in fish recovering in still water. Muscle glycogen was completely resynthesized and lactate cleared within 2 h of exercise in swimming fish compared with more than 6 h required in the fish held in still water. Similarly, blood lactate level and acid-base status were restored more quickly in the swimming fish. These observations suggest that the prolonged recovery usually associated with exhaustive exercise in rainbow trout is due to elevations in plasma cortisol concentration and that the stimulus for cortisol release is not exercise per se, but rather post-exercise inactivity.
