Vitrification could provide a promising tool for the cryopreservation of fish embryos. However, in order to achieve a vitrifiable medium, a high concentration of permeable cryoprotectants must be employed, and the incorporation of high molecular weight compounds should also be considered. The toxicity of these permeable and non-permeable agents has to be(More)
Short-term storage over several days as well as cryopreservation of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) sperm were studied. Two extenders, Ringer 200 and artificial seminal liquid (ASL2), are suggested for scmcn collection in order to avoid the deleterious effect of urine contamination, and for the purpose of short-term storage between 0 and 15°C.

Cryopreservation of primordial germ cells (PGCs) is a better alternative for the conservation of the diploid genome in fish until embryo cryopreservation is achieved. A good cryopreservation protocol must guarantee high survival rates but also absence of genetic damage. In this study, a cell toxicity test using several internal and external cryoprotectants(More)
The Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) is a flatfish that exhibits severe reproductive dysfunctions in captivity. This study aimed at investigating the existence of a dopamine (DA) inhibitory tone on the reproductive axis of this species. Four groups of Senegalese sole breeders were treated with, saline (controls, CNT), the DA antagonist pimozide (PIM, 5(More)
The existence of daily rhythms under light/dark (LD) cycles in plasma cortisol, blood glucose and locomotor and self-feeding activities, as well as their persistence (circadian nature) under constant light (LL), was investigated in Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis). For the cortisol and glucose rhythms study, 48 soles were equally distributed in 8 tanks(More)
Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) is a promising species in aquaculture. However, owing to decreased sperm quality in F1 generations and the absence of courtship in those individuals born in captivity, artificial fertilization is being used to generate new progenies. The objective of this study was to implement a sperm selection method for nonapoptotic(More)
The particular characteristics of fish embryos require the development of specific methods for cryopreservation. One of the main obstacles is related to the presence of membranes and compartments with different water and cryoprotectant permeability. To assess dimethyl sulfoxide (Me2SO4) permeability, we exposed turbot embryos (Scophthalmus maximus) at F(More)
The aim of this work was to characterize stress coping styles of Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) juveniles and breeders and to select an operational behavioural screening test (OBST) that can be used by the aquaculture industry to classify and select between behavioural phenotypes in order to improve production indicators. A total of 61 juveniles and(More)
Melatonin actions are mediated through G protein-coupled transmembrane receptors. Recently, mt1, mt2, and mel1c melatonin receptors were cloned in the Senegalese sole. Here, their day-night and developmental expressions were analyzed by quantitative PCR. These results revealed distinct expression patterns of each receptor through development. mel1c(More)
