The effects of acute temperature change on the cost of bluegill Lepomis macrochirus swimming were quantified. At 14° C, maximum labriform swimming speed (Ulab,max) was reduced relative to that at the acclimation temperature of 22° C, but total cost of transport (TTC) remained unchanged. At 30° C, Ulab,max was the same as at 22° C, but TTC was 66% greater.
