Na affects shrimp/water how?

Recommended Posts

You HAD to ask when I'm not able to go look it up in the invert textbook for another three weeks ... now I'm curious.

In general, levels of sodium ion in aquatic environments have to get really high before they have an impact.

Both Na+ and K+ are essential in fresh water and sea water. In actual fact, they are essential for electrolyte and controlling the hydration of cells. You should have heard about osmotic shock right? This is caused by the cells are unable to regulate the salinity fast enough by introducing or expelling Na and K.
