If the smolts are held in freshwater, gill ATPase activity will revert to baseline levels as parr reversion occurs (after Dickhoff et al.

The reduced production of fecal material and the toxic excretory products ammonia and carbon dioxide is an additional benefit. Although 24 hours of fasting is a useful general rule, the actual time required for food to be digested, usually measured as the time for an inert marker to appear in the feces, is highly dependent on water temperature and on the amount and composition of the diet. Food retention time decreases as the amount of food ingested and the water temperature increase. 5% of the body weight might take more than several days to pass through the gut of a salmonid at 5°C while at 20°C, most of it would pass through in several hours.

Erythrocytes, which serve to transport oxygen, make up the majority of the cells. 5 years as compared to about 110 days for (mammalian) nonnucleated cells. Typical red cell counts average 1 to 2 million per mm 3 of blood in salmonids (Bowser 1993). Leukocytes are far fewer in number than red blood cells, averaging 10,00015,000 per mm 3 of blood in salmonids. They are differentiated in the kidney into several specialized types, usually classified as lymphocytes, neutrophils, and thrombocytes, which perform a variety of vital functions.
