Title:The Reactions and Resistance of Fishes to Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide
Author(s):Wells, M.M.
Subject(s):Fish Reaction
Carbon Dioxide
Carbon Monoxide
Abstract:Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide are both present in the wast that is diverted into natural waters by many works where illuminating gas is manufactured and, since the waste as a whole is known to be exceedingly poisonous to aquatic organisms, the role played in its toxic action by the two gases in question was investigated at the time that the many other organic substances of which the waste is composed were studied by Shelford. The investigation has shown that both of the gases are poisonous to fresh-water fishes even when present in the water in relatively small proportions, but the monoxide has been found to be by far the ore deadly of the two.
