Summary The gills are considered major targets for cardiac natriuretic peptides with studies confirming natriuretic peptide receptor presence on vascular and sometimes epithelial tissues. Natriuretic peptide intracellular signalling is via guanylyl cyclase receptors and the cGMP pathway, and via inhibitory G-proteins linked to cyclic AMP pathways. Natriuretic peptides in the gills alter branchial blood flow and may also alter ion transport in various salinities. We present an overview of natriuretic peptide cGMP and cAMP signalling in fishes and consider the implications of the recent discovery of several CNPs and BNP in bony fishes on natriuretic peptide receptor studies.
