Abstract

Ozone causes gross damage to the gills. Extensive fungal infections often followed exposure to ozone, suggesting epithelial damage. An abrupt decrease in blood serum osmolality was detected in fish exposed to ozone. Mortality occurred when osmolality dropped approximately 50 mOsm below initial values.
