FishResp: R package for Aquatic Respirometry


The R package 'FishResp' is designed to calculate metabolic rate of aquatic organisms measured using an intermittent-flow respirometry approach. Raw respirometry data can be imported from:

  • PumpResp (open-source pump controller by FishResp)
  • SensResp (open-source DO meter by FishResp).
  • AutoResp (by LoligoSystems)
  • Pyro Oxygen Logger (by PyroScience)
  • OxyView (by PreSens)
  • AquaResp (free software)
  • Q-box Aqua (by QubitSystems)

The idea behind FishResp, an analysis pipeline and case studies are described in the academic publication by Morozov et al. (2019). Technical information about R functions and demo data can be found in Reference Manual. Brief descriptions of the R package 'FishResp' and other open-source tools for aquatic respirometry are located at the website


The stable version of the ‘FishResp’ package can be installed from CRAN:

Alternativelly, download the latest release from GitHub and install using the following command:

If you are not familiar with the R language, please check out the graphical implementation of the R package: FishRespGUI.


To cite FishResp please refer to: "Morozov, S., McCairns, R.J.S., Merila, J. (2019) FishResp: R package and GUI application for analysis of aquatic respirometry data. Conserv Physiol 7(1): coz003;".
