- Interrenal ascorbic acid and serum cortisol were measured in non-specificity stressed yearling coho salmon and rainbow trout.
- Interrenal ascorbate was markedly decreased during stress but increased to normal if adaptation occurred.
- Serum cortisol was elevated by non-specific stress and remained high after interrenal ascorbate had returned to initial levels.
