Abstract/Summary

1. Carbonic anhydrase levels in flounder red cells were unchanged by adaptation to salt or fresh water. 2. Two major red cell isoenzymes were found in flounder red cells after electrophoresis. These patterns were identical in all fish studied, whether from salt or fresh water environments. Thus no inherited or adaptive changes were observed. 3. Both flounder red cell carbonic anhydrase isoenzymes split a range of ester substrates. Activity was abolished with acetazolamide.
