Key Words:Paracobitis variegatus; oxygen consumption rate (OCR); asphyxiation point

The oxygen consumption rate (OCR) and asphyxiation point of Paracobitis variegatus were measured in sealed-fluid water. The results showed that the OCR of P. variegatus decreased with increasing of body weight. The oxygen consumption rate was significantly different with diurnal variation (P<0.05). When the water temperature was 14.0 , the OCR of P. variegatus weighted 4.0 g was 0.1659 mg/(g.h), and the average OCR in day-time (8:30~18:30) and night (20:30~6:30) were 0.1389 mg/(g.h) and 0.1930 mg/(g.h), respectively; the OCR of P. variegatus weighted 7.9 g was 0.1175 mg/(g.h), and the average OCR in day-time and night were 0.1099 mg/(g.h) and 0.1251 mg/(g.h), respectively; the OCR of P. variegatus weighted 9.5 g was 0.0534 mg/(g.h), and the average OCR in day-time and night were 0.0509 mg/(g.h) and 0.0559 mg/(g.h), respectively. The asphyxiation point was 1.137 mg/L for P. variegatus weighted 9.5 g. The current study shows that Pvariegatus is a kind of species with high oxygen consumption rate and asphyxiation point.
