Piava juveniles (25-30 g) were exposed to ve concentrations of NH3 (mg L-1): 0.003 (control), 0.1, 0.4, 0.7, and 1.4; after 96 hours, plasma levels of Na , K , Cl- and NH4 ions and metabolic and enzyme activity in tissues (liver, kidneys, gills and muscle) were measured.
The lethal concentration (LC50; 96h) of NH3 was 0.27 mg L-1.
As NH3 increased, Na and NH4 in the plasma increased and K decreased.
In addition, Na -K ATPase activity concomitantly increased in the gills and decreased in the kidneys.
Glucose, glycogen, and protein levels decreased, while lactate and ammonia increased in the tissues of piava juveniles that were treated with higher concentrations of ammonia.
