The Responses of Young American Shad to Rapid Temperature Changes

Abstract
Captive juvenile American shad (Alosa sapidissima) avoided rapid temperature increases of about 4 ° C above acclimatization temperatures in an experimental tank. Responses to rapid temperature changes of about 1.0 ° C were not consistent and did not result in demonstrable avoidances. It is concluded that young shad are capable of avoiding potentially lethal temperature changes.
