Muscle tissue of coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and steelhead trout (Salmo gairdneri) were examined by light and electron microscopy to localize the lysosomes within the muscle tissue. Three distinct populations of lysosomes were identified on the basis of their location within the tissue: (1) in connective tissue cells associated with the connective tissue compartment, (2) within but at the periphery of the muscle cells, and (3) within the muscle cells distributed among the myofibrils.
