    Abstract

    An improved version of rotatory-flow apparatus, which allows tests of fitness with fish of different size at constant temperature, is described. Optimal experimental conditions have been investigated with cod. The method has been applied to the study of the influence of temperature on the effect of ethanol in cod and to comparison of the fitness of cod from an inconsiderably contaminated and a polluted area.
