This 2 year study examined the reproductive cycle of wild female Ballan wrasse Labrus bergylta in western Norway as a precursor to captive breeding trials. Light microscopy of ovarian histology was used to stage gonad maturity and enzyme-linked immuno-absorbent assay (ELISA) to measure plasma concentrations of the sex steroids testosterone (T) and(More)
The gonadotropic system and ovarian growth and development were studied during vitellogenesis in female Atlantic salmon subjected to either simulated natural photoperiod and ambient water temperature (NL-amb), or an accelerating photoperiod (short day of LD8:16 from May 10) combined with either warmed (ca 2°C above ambient; 8L-warm) or cooled water (ca 2°C(More)
Wild Ballan wrasse Labrus bergylta were sampled monthly over 2 years in western Norway to identify the natural process of sex change in this species. Light microscopy of standard histological-stained and immunohistochemistry-treated gonad tissue showed that spermatogonial germ cells tended to proliferate around the periphery of the lamellae before filling(More)
