Abstract

A decline in salinity caused a reduction in clearance rates, absorption efficiency and scope of growth and an increase in excretion rates. Meanwhile, the projected rise in pCO2 reduced excretion rates and its interaction with a salinity decline resulted in higher oxygen uptake in an ecologically and economically important species.
