To directly and definitively identify the functional roles played by the "chloride" cells verses those played by the "respiratory" cells, and provides a powerful tool to elucidate the roles of different hormonal systems which have been implicated as regulatory factors for controlling the osmoregulatory/respiratory/excretory functions of gill in teleost fish.
