We isolated Korean soft-shelled turtle, Pelodiscus sinensis, mitochondrial DNA by long-polymerase chain reaction (long-PCR) with conserved primers and sequenced this mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) with primer walking using flanking sequences. The P. sinensis mitochondrial DNA has 17,042 bp and its structural organization is conserved compared to those of(More)
The effects of nutritional conditions on alterations in condition factor, liver-somatic index, and hepatocyte ultrastructure in the olive flounder Paralichthys olivaceus were examined. Twelve weeks of starvation significantly decreased the condition factor and the liver-somatic index in the olive flounder. Hepatocytes underwent marked ultrastructural(More)
The main objective of this investigation was to examine physiological changes occurring within the olive flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus, in the presence of continuous stress factors. The experiment gave continuous stress, and each stress step is as follows: water level reduction (S1), selection process (S2), confinement (S3), air exposure (S4),(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of cryopreservation methods for ex situ conservation of spermatozoa from far eastern catfish, Silurus asotus. The spermatozoa activity index (SAI) and hatching rates were higher in spermatozoa stored in Alserver's solution than those of spermatozoa stored in glucose solution. The SAI and hatching rates in(More)
Fish may be anesthetized for various experimental and practical purposes, primarily to immobilize them in order to facilitate handling. Marine medaka (Oryzias dancena) is a teleost fish used in marine ecotoxicology studies. Despite the importance of anesthesia in handling experimental fish, the effects of anesthesia in marine medaka have not yet been(More)
An experiment was conducted for 12 weeks to determine the effect of feeding and starvation on truss and classical parameters in the external body of olive flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus. There was an increase in the truss dimension of body depth in the trunk region of the fed group at the end of the experiment (P < 0.05). In the olive flounder, the trunk(More)
In this study, we measured the morphometric and histological changes in the cyprinid loach, Misgurnus anguillicaudatus, during the early period of growth. Eyes, yolk length, yolk height, and yolk volume of the larva decreased for 16 days post hatching (DPH) (P<0.05). During 60 DPH (P>0.05), the most anterior extension of the head × the posterior end of the(More)
For the 2 years of farming, at the indoor circulating aquaculture system, four kinds of skeletal deformities were found among 60 Far Eastern catfish, Silurus asotus. Deformities saw jawbone's luxation, abnormality of upper lip and malocclusion. Spinal deformity was most fatal deformities with low weight and small length. Jawbone's luxation had 1 maxilla and(More)
The influence of triploidization on cell and nucleus size characteristics of the same tissues of erythrocyte, retina, kidney, hepatocyte and midgut epithelium in marine medaka, Oryzias dancena has been determined histologically. Induced triploid fish are produced by cold shock treatments. Likewise, the size of horizontal cell nucleus in inner nuclear layer(More)
Morphometric changes in the Ussurian bullhead, Leiocassis ussuriensis, and the Korean bullhead, Pseudobagrus fulvidraco, were observed during the early period of growth. Yolk length, yolk height, and yolk volume in the two species decreased within 9 days post-hatching (DPH) (p<0.05). The body lengths and body heights of both species increased gradually to(More)
