In the present study, levels of three GnRH forms [seabream GnRH (sbGnRH), chicken GnRH-II (cGnRH-II), and salmon GnRH (sGnRH)] were analyzed in the pituitary of male sea bass during sex differentiation and the first spawning season. Plasma levels of gonadotropin (GTH-2), testosterone (T), and 11-ketotestosterone (11-KT) were determined during the same(More)
Three oestrogen receptor [ER] subtypes have been described in teleost fish, namely ERalpha, and two ERbeta subtypes, called ERbeta1 and ERbeta2 (or ERbeta and ERgamma in Atlantic croaker). Their expression during embryonic development and gonadal growth has evoked interest in their potential role in sexual differentiation and gonadal development in fish. We(More)
The effect of long-term exposure to continuous light on the hormonal aspects of the reproductive axis was investigated in juvenile male sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax, L.) during the first annual cycle. Four-month-old fish were exposed to a simulated natural photoperiod (NP) and a continuous light (24 h) regime (LL) under natural conditions of temperature(More)
12 Two large groups of fingerling (3.2g) male European sea bass (around 75,000 13 individuals each) reared in net sea cages for a period of two years were exposed to two 14 different photoperiods starting in June: either ambient photoperiod (37o 24 ́ N) (NP) or a 15 constant long photoperiod (LP; 18 hours light: 6 hours dark, 18L: 6D). Long days had limited(More)
Photoperiod is one of the main external cues in the control of different stages of fish development. In the present work, the effect of several photoperiods, known to delay spawning in adult fish, was investigated in juvenile male sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) during testicular differentiation and first testicular recrudescence. Fish were exposed to(More)
