Abstract
    Aquatic organisms are continuously exposed to a variety of environmental stressors. In addition to the natural stress encountered by organisms in their habitats, the manipulation of the environment by man, generates stress which differs in type and or intensity of those encountered in normal environments. To understand and predict the effects of environmental stress on aquatic organisms it is necessary to develop tools that can measure the biological impact of such perturbations. Alterations in the energy status of an organism in relation to stress provides direct information on the key processes of energy acquisition, expenditure and availability for growth and reproduction. This makes it possible to re late the effects at the cellular level with the effects on growth, reproduction and survival at the individual and population level. Determination of the effects of environmental stress on the physiological components of the energy budget therefore provides a sensitive and integrative approach to the assessment of environmental quality with important applications in aquaculture and eco-toxicology.
