Effects of environmental salinity on pituitary growth hormone content and cell activity in the euryhaline tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus.
TLDR
All data indicate heightened GH cell activity in SW-raised tilapia and suggest that GH may play a causal role in the greater growth rates observed in SW tilapio compared to FW fish and/or thatGH may be involved in SW osmoregulation.
