Tests were conducted in shallow (0.25 m) and deep (2.5 m) tanks of water at 10C with concentrations of dissolved atmospheric gas ranging from 100% to 127% of air saturation to determine the lethal and sublethal effects on juvenile fall chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) and steelhead trout (Salmo gairdneri). Fall chinook salmon were much more resistant to super-saturation than juvenile steelhead trout. Salmon tested in the shallow tanks at 120% of saturation incurred 50% mortality in 22 days whereas trout tested at the same level incurred 50% mortality in 30 hours. Signs of bas bubble disease were noted on dead fish and on subsamples of live fish from deep water tests at 110% saturation and in shallow water tests at 105% or above. Vertical distribution of both salmon and trout in the deep tanks appeared to compensate for about 10% and 10-15% respectively of effective saturation.

Contents Notes
Tests were conducted to determine the lethal and sublethal effects of dissolved atmospheric gas on juvenile fall chinook salmon and steelhead trout. Testing took place at 0.25 and 2.5 meter depths in tanks with saturation levels ranging between 100% and 127%.
