Investigations were performed on changes of respiration intensity of kidney and liver of bream resulting from reversible anaesthesia. Each fish was subjected to test of 1.8 V direct current during 5 minutes remaining in homogenous electric field. Reversible anaesthesia increased the intensity of respiration of both organs. The investigations proved also the existing correlation between the weight of body and the extent of metabolic changes of liver and kidney in reversible anaesthesia. Sensitivity of fish to current test decreased in relation to increase of its weight.
