In order to better understand how photo-thermal conditions affect oogenesis in captive-bred F1 hāpuku, a wreckfish considered for aquaculture in New Zealand, juvenile (pre-pubertal) fish were assigned to one of two regimes: exposed to a constant temperature of 17°C (CT group) or to seasonally varying temperatures (VT group range: 10-17°C), both under(More)
The ability to advance puberty in broodstock that have a long generation interval and mature at large size is a highly valuable tool in contemporary aquaculture enterprise. Juvenile male and female wreckfish 'hāpuku' (Polyprion oxygeneios), a candidate for commercialization in aquaculture, were subjected to treatment for 8weeks with two implants, one(More)
