Abstract
This review addresses an often overlooked aspect of elasmobranch osmoregulation, i.e., control of body fluid volume. More specifically the
review addresses the impact of changes in blood volume in elasmobranchs exposed to different environmental salinities. Measurement of blood
volume in the European lesser-spotted dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula, following acute and chronic exposure to 80% and 120% seawater (SW) is
reported. In 80%, 100% and 120% SW-adapted S. canicula, blood volume was 6.30.2, 5.60.2 and 4.60.2 mL 100 g- 1
body mass,
