Ploidy induction and sex control in fish
TLDR
In fish, pre-embryonic events such as insemination, second polar body extrusion and first mitotic cleavage are manipulable and render 37 different types of ploidy induction possible, and the need for confirmation of genetic purity of mitotic gynogens by one or more methods is emphasized.
Acute and chronic effects of carbaryl on survival, growth, and metamorphosis in the bullfrog (Rana tigrina)
TLDR
Rates of feeding, defecation, and excretion increased with increasing concentration of carbaryl but the conversion rate decreased leading to the production of small froglets, leading to mortality was significant, even at 2 mg/L.

Effect on growth and reproduction of hormone immersed and masculinized fighting fish Betta splendens.
TLDR
To produce all-male progenies in the fighting fish, Betta splendens, six groups of fry were subjected to discrete immersion treatment at different 17alpha-methyltestosterone (MT) doses, ensuring not only a higher percentage of masculinization, but also a higher frequency of homogametic males (XX).
Ecophysiological studies on the developing eggs and embryos of the European lobster Homarus gammarus
TLDR
The imbibition of water by the developing marine demersal egg seems to serve in osmotic hatching; float the hatched larva by means of specific gravity reduction; and aid the larva to quickly adjust its body temperature in the light of Needham's concept of “cleidoicterrestrial and non cleidoic-aquatic eggs”.

Recent Advances in Hormonal Induction of Sex-Reversal in Fish
TLDR
A neuroendocrine peptide can induce sex-reversal in pro-togynous labrid teleosts, similar to androgenic and antiestrogenic steroids, and is absorbed within one hour after intake and selectively retained in gall bladder, pyloric caeca and liver for a longer time.
