“This study demonstrates the value of osmotic pumps as effective delivery vehicles for drugs in wild demersal fish.” (p.1024). “We conclude that the administration of T3 by osmotic pumps is an effective means of creating experimental hyperthyroidism in wild Atlantic cod.Similarly, the administration of methimazole, thiourea, or testosterone with osmotic pumps was effective in rendering cod hypothyroid.” (p.1025) Comeau et al., Transactions of the American Fisheries Society 2003;132:1021-1026.
