(Oncorhynchus mykiss) and the effect of prolonged exposure to continuous 2 illumination on daily rhythms of per1, clock, and aanat2 expression 3 4 Abstract 17 It is widely held that the development of the circadian system during embryogenesis is 18 important for future survival of an organism. Work in teleosts has been, to date, limited to 19 zebrafish,(More)
In the underwater environment, the properties of light (intensity and spectrum) change rapidly with depth and water quality. In this article, we have described how and to what extent lighting conditions can influence the development, growth, and survival of zebrafish. Fertilized eggs and the corresponding larvae were exposed to different visible light(More)
In the wild, water temperature cycles daily: it warms up after sunrise, and cools rapidly after sunset. Surprisingly, the impact of such daily thermocycles during the early development of fish remains neglected. We investigated the influence of constant vs daily thermocycles in zebrafish, from embryo development to sexual differentiation, by applying four(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: Sparus aurata Video-tracking Swimming activity Chronotoxicity MS-222 Anaesthesia Fish are frequently exposed to anaesthetics since their use is necessary in several aquaculture procedures. The aim of this study was to investigate the existence of day–night differences in the toxicity and effectiveness of a common fish(More)
Behavioral rhythms of the Nile tilapia were investigated to better characterize its circadian system. To do so, the locomotor activity patterns of both male and female tilapia reared under a 12:12 h light-dark (LD) cycle were studied, as well as in males the existence of endogenous rhythmicity under free-running conditions (DD and 45 min LD pulses). When(More)
Seabass is a fish species with dual (diurnal/nocturnal) feeding behavior, although little is known about changes in its molecular clock, physiology and metabolism linked to this dual behavior. In the research described here possible differences in clock gene expression in central (brain) and peripheral (liver) oscillators, and in physiology (blood glucose(More)
Daily variation in the absorption, metabolism and excretion of toxic substances will ultimately determine the actual concentration to which the cells and tissues are exposed. In aquaculture, Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) can be frequently exposed to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to treat topical skin and gill infections, particularly in relation to parasitic(More)
Sea bass change their feeding rhythms from diurnal to nocturnal in winter, returning to diurnal feeding in spring. Despite behavioral data, the physiological changes that take place during such changes remain unexplored. In this paper, blood glucose rhythms of European sea bass with diurnal/nocturnal self-feeding rhythms were investigated during phase(More)
The effect of temperatures from 5 degrees to 40 degrees C on EEG amplitude, evoked potentials amplitudes to optical stimuli and latencies of components of evoked potential in lizard Lacerta galloti, have been studied, by means of chronically implanted electrodes in dorsal and medial telencephalic cortex. Evoked responses show with greater amplitude in the(More)
