Abstract or Summary
  • The relationship between predator avoidance deficits induced by a simple handling stress and the level of plasma corticosteroids was determined for juvenile coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch. Groups of fish were held out of water for 1 min, then allowed to recover from this stress for 1, 90, or 240 min. After each recovery period, some unstressed and stressed fish were sampled for plasma cortisol, and others were subjected to predation by lingcod Ophiodon elongatus. Levels of corticosteroids in stressed fish remained high throughout the 240-min period of recovery, but predator avoidance returned to control levels in less than 90 min. Results suggest that juvenile coho salmon quickly recover basic survival skills of predator avoidance after mild stress, even though cortisol levels continue to indicate a stressed condition.
