Abstract In recent years our understanding of the control of ion and urea metabolism in elasmobranch fish has increased with many more species being investigated. This has demonstrated that many species regarded as stenohaline marine are at least, partially euryhaline and may survive in environments less concentrated than full seawater. This presentation will review these recent findings and then compare the osmoregulatory strategies of a partially euryhaline species, Scyliorhinus canicula, with a fully euryhaline migratory species Carcharinus leucas. This will include new data for both species and will generate new models for the control of ion and urea metabolism in elasmobranchs on which to base future research.
