In order to approximate plasma volume, extracellular fluid volume and total body water volume of Korean native goats, measurements were made of the volumes of distribution of Evans blue, potasium thiocyanate and antipyrine. The results obtained in this work were summarized as follows: 1. Plasma volume showed a range of 50 to 72ml/kg with a mean of $62{\pm}6.2ml/kg$ (SD). 2. Blood volume showed a range of 69 to 98ml/kg with a mean of $85{\pm}7.9ml/kg$. 3. Extracellular fluid volume showed a range of 265 to 310ml/kg with a mean of $297{\pm}18.3ml/kg$. 4. Interstitial fluid volume showed a range of 204 to 261ml/kg with a mean of $236{\pm}16.8ml/kg$. 5. Intracellular fluid volume showed a range of 380 to 436ml/kg with a mean of $420{\pm}12.6ml/kg$. 6. The volume of total body water showed a range of 680 to 735ml/kg with a mean of $714{\pm}17.7ml/kg$.
