Fifteen steelhead trout, Salmo gairdneri, were assayed for selective blood parameters. The trout were reared under flow-through conditions at the salmonid aquaculture facility at the University of Rhode Island. The means of the measured haematological parameters were: pH, 7·59 ± 0·05; pCO2, 8·5 ± 1·05 mmHg; HCO3-, 11·9 ± 1·9 meq/1; Ferri-Hb, 21·7 ± 2·0%; C1-, 147 ± 17·8 meq/1; Hct, 30·7 ± 4·8%.
