Pressures at which American eel were found to be neutrally buoyant after 1 d of acclimation to 172 kPa. Pressures were not measured below atmospheric pressures (atm), therefore the median for silver-phase eel is presented as less than or equal to atmospheric pressure.

  Yellow-phase Silver-phase
n 100 107
n ≤ atm 24 67
Max (kPa) 169.6 159.0
Median (kPa) 124.5 ≤ 101.3
