This study assessed the effect of tissue storage duration and accuracy of the metabolic inhibitor tissue homogenate (MITH) method on intracellular pH (pHi) values of tissues of white sturgeon Acipenser transmontanus during hypercarbia. No effect of storage in liquid nitrogen of up to 30 days was observed and MITH appears appropriate for measurement of pH in fish exposed to up to 10% CO2 (10000 Pa pCO2).
