ram ventilation


Quick Reference

The production of respiratory flow in some fish in which the mouth is opened during swimming, such that water flows through the mouth and across the gills. In fish which have a reduced or no ability to pump water buccally, such as mackerel and sharks, perpetual swimming is required to maintain ventilation.
