|Abstract||Routine and post-exercise metabolic rates were measured for juvenile rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss and brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis infected with the microsporidium gill parasite Loma salmonae under laboratory conditions. Rainbow trout increased routine and post-exercise metabolic rate in response to infection compared with controls. Brook trout, on the other hand, lowered routine metabolic rate without effecting post-exercise metabolic rate compared to controls. The result of these 2 different strategies may either reflect defense of metabolic scope or a difference in the rate of recovery of the excess post-exercise oxygen consumption between the 2 species in response to the same infection.|
