Abstract 1. The Antarctic teleost Pagothenia borchgrevinki was exposed to the water soluble fraction of diesel fuel oil. 2. Under the acute time frame used, no mortalities occurred, even at high concentrations. 3. Exposure to the oil caused elevations in metabolic rates and a 50% increase in haematocrit. 4. Plasma chloride levels did not change.
