Design and physiology of arteries and veins | Anatomical Pathways and Patterns

Abstract

A basic pattern is common to the circulation in all fish, including hagfish, elasmobranchs, and bony fish. The fish circulation is a simple loop in which blood, pumped by the heart, passes first through a short arterial system into the gills and then onto a second, more extensive arterial system that supplies the systemic tissues. While the respiratory and systemic circulations lie in series, arterial branching within the gill and systemic circulations create in-parallel vascular arrangements of capillary beds. A well-developed venous system then collects the blood and returns it back to the heart. This article identifies the major arteries and veins of a bony fish and serves as a general anatomical reference of fish vascular nomenclature. The more notable variations in hagfish and elasmobranchs are also described.
