Abstract

The venous system is an often ignored, yet vital component of the cardiovascular system. Besides conducting blood from the capillaries back to the heart, either active regulation of venous tone through its own vascular smooth muscle or passive events often associated with contraction of adjacent skeletal muscle have profound effects on cardiac output and therefore arterial blood pressure. These vessels, as their name implies, also store most of the blood volume in the circulatory system of fishes.
