The efficiency of Ovaprim™ salmon gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) and dopamine antagonist on the induction of spawning and spermiation in Prochilodus lineatus in comparison with the commonly used method using pituitary extract (PE) was evaluated. Females received PE at 0.5 + 5.0 mg/kg and Ovaprim™ at 0.05 + 0.45 ml/kg or at 0.125 + 0.375(More)
The aim of this study was to determine fresh and frozen sperm quality evaluated over two spawning seasons (2013-2014; 2014-2015) in Prochilodus lineatus and Brycon orbignyanus. The spawning seasons were divided into two sampling periods: November to December and January to February. Males were hand-stripped after carp pituitary treatment. Fresh sperm(More)
In this study we compared post-thaw quality of P. lineatus sperm frozen shortly after collection, with sperm frozen after dilution and transportation, and up to 6h from collection. From each sperm sample (n=10 males) five aliquots were taken. One aliquot was diluted in the freezing medium (1 sperm:8 glucose:1 methyl glycol) and frozen ∼20min after(More)
