Annual cycle measurements were made on serum sodium (Na), potassium (K), chloride (Cl), iron (Fe), magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), carbon dioxide (CO2), total protein (TP), albumin (Albg), cholesterol (Chol), triglycerides (Trig), inorganic phosphorous (Pi), uric acid (Uric), blood urea Nitrogen (BUN), creatinine (Crea), glucose (Glu), lactate dehydrogenase (LD-L), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and creatine kinase (CK) in the striped mullet (Mugil cephalus) and the pinfish (Lagodon rhomboides). For each parameter, mean, standard deviation and coefficient of variation (CV) are reported. The lowest CVs were associated with the electrolytes and the higher CVs with serum enzymes. The lowest variability for most parameters was observed in the vitellogenic and prespawning period. (Copyright (c) 1992 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.)
