dc.description.abstract The effects of temperature and weight on standard metabolism of bluegill, Lepomis macrochirus, were examined. Experiments were conducted at 13 and 24 C with bluegill ranging in weight from 1.09 to 22.93 g. Oxygen consumption per gram weight decreased with increased weight and total oxygen consumption increased with increased weight. The Q10 standard metabolic rate increased from 1.8 times for small fish to 1.5 times for large fish with an increase in temperature from 13 to 24 C. The standard metabolic rate found for bluegill, as related to weight and temperature, is in general agreement with previously reported standard metabolism of this species.
