Spawning Cycle and Egg Production of Zebrafish, Brachydanio rerio, in the Laboratory
Single pairs of zebrafish, Brachydanio rerio, 12 months old, spawned at an interval of 1.9 days when the male and female were left continuously together. Three months later the spawning interval hadExpand

Functional development in the Mauthner cell system of embryos and larvae of the zebra fish.
In the embryonic zebra fish as early as 40 hr after fertilization, the Mauthner cells (M-cells) initiate an escape response, elicited by tactile-vibrational stimulation. The initial part of thisExpand
