The effective short-term storage of semen is essential when processing multiple sperm samples and when semen must be transported from collection sites to hatcheries for the fertilization of ova, or to laboratories for cryopreservation. In the present study, the spermatozoa of Persian sturgeon (Acipenser persicus) were used to evaluate the effects of(More)
The objectives of the present study were to determine ionic and organic composition of seminal plasma, sperm concentration and their relationships in the Persian sturgeon (Acipenser persicus). In this regard, ionic content (Na(+) , K(+) , Cl(-) , Ca(2+) and Mg(2+) ) and organic content (total protein, glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride) along with sperm(More)
Reuse of sturgeon broodfish for propagation could provide an opportunity to ease fishing pressure on the wild stocks of these valued species. A minimally invasive surgical technique (MIST) for the removal of ovulated eggs from the beluga, Huso huso, was tested on broodfish caught from the wild to determine whether it affected fecundity or hatching rates(More)
We investigated the effect of storage times of frozen-thawed Persian sturgeon (Acipenser persicus) semen on the duration of sperm motility, percentage of motile sperm, and fertilization and hatching rates of fresh sperm and sperm stored for 0, 30, and 60 min at 4°C post-thawing. Frozen thawed semen analyzed immediately after thawing had similar quality(More)
For studying the effect of LHRH-A2 hormone on the induction of final maturation and ovulation of Persian sturgeon, 71 matured females and 20 matured males were used. Five groups of breeders were injected with sturgeon pituitary gland hormone (50 mg per fish) and LHRH-A2 in dosages of 3.5, 7, 8 and 10 μg kg−1 for females and 3 and 5 μg kg−1 for males.(More)
This study investigated the effect of manipulated photoperiod on haematological parameter in beluga sturgeon (Huso huso). One hundred eight fish (24-month old) were randomly allocated into 18 tanks. Each tank received one of six photoperiod regimes for 73 days: natural photoperiod, 24Light (L):0Dark (D), 16L:8D, 12L:12D, 8L:16D and 0L:24D. Different(More)
Effects of post-ovulatory retention time in the ovarian cavity on egg quality were studied in kutum Rutilus frisii kutum at temperatures of 11 and 14°C. Partial volumes of eggs (20 g) were obtained from 10 individually identified females and stripped and fertilized at 24-hour intervals for 96 hours post-ovulation (HPO) (at 11°C) and at 12-hour intervals for(More)
The aim of this study was to test the influence of post-thaw storage time on the duration of sperm motility, percentage of motile sperm, and fertilization and hatching rates of fresh sperm and sperm stored for 0, 30 and 60 min at 4°C post-thawing. After being frozen in liquid nitrogen and then thawed, the percentage of motile sperm and duration of motility(More)
Amino acids have an important biological role for the prevention of cell damage during cryopreservation. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of glutamine on post-thaw sperm motility and fertilization success in the Persian sturgeon (Acipenser persicus). Sperm collected from six fish was cryopreserved in extenders containing different(More)
The present approach was designed to evaluate the methanol-glucose extender effects on sperm cryopreservation in beluga sturgeon, Huso huso. Sperm quality was examined by measuring post-thaw sperm motility and fertilizing rate at hatching stage. We first tested the effect of glucose concentration (0, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20 and 0.30M) in a methanol extender on(More)
