A study in dogfish (Squalus acanthias), demonstrated that the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, Captopril (CAP), greatly reduced basal drinking rates and blocked the dipsogenic response to administration of angiotensin I (ANGI), while having no effect on a strong dipsogenic effect produced by ANGII infusion (Anderson et al.
