Abstract

Baseline, post-angling and maximum attainable blood lactate concentrations were measured for the fishery species redthroat emperor Lethrinus miniatus to gain insight into the condition of fish released following c. 30 s angling and <45 s air exposure. Mean  s.d. baseline blood lactate was 15  06 mmol l−1, which increased and plateaued around 6 mmol l−1 at 1530 min post-angling. These values were significantly lower than those obtained from fish maximally exhausted with a prolonged chase and air exposure protocol following capture (109  18 mmol l−1), suggesting that L. miniatus is not maximally exhausted during standard angling practices.
