Abstract: The salmonid intestinal epithelium is important for growth and health of the fish. The epithelium is exposed to a multitude of internal and external factors that can influence its function. During the parr-smolt transformation and subsequent seawater transfer, the epithelium adapts for an osmoregulatory role and the fish starts drinking seawater (SW). Endocrine signals increases the intestinal water uptake partly through an up-regulation of Na+,K+-ATPase activity. It is shown that the epithelial... more
