Scientists from fifteen countries presented papers at the Sixth International Symposium on Fish Physiology, Toxicology, and Water Quality held in La Paz, Baja, Mexico, January 22-26, 2001. These Proceedings include 25 papers presented in sessions convened over four days. Papers addressed the effects of hypoxia and anoxia on the physiology of fishes and aquatic invertebrates as a global phenomenon, the role of adenosine as a universal promoter of fish survival under hypoxia, the effects of hypoxia on fish species, and the specific effects of hypoxia and anoxia in: temperate estuaries, the continental shelf, the deep sea environment, shallow eutrophic lakes, and the subtropical environment. Water quality papers included: general discussions on hypoxia, effects of anoxia on the marine sulfur cycle, effects of hypoxia/anoxia on major ion and redox chemistry, physical effects of anoxia on sediment biota morphology, hypoxia in the Gulf of California, effect of hypoxia on the ecological conditions of coastal estuaries, nonpoint source pollution effects on coastal hypoxia, modeling effects of climate change on hypoxia, and the use of eutrophication modeling to assess water quality and ecological endpoints.
