A method of geometric morphometrics was used to characterize body shape variation in meiotic gyno- genetic and triploid sea bass in comparison with diploid controls. A total of 13 coordinate landmark data were recorded on the profile of 34-month-old control (n = 81), gynogenetic (n = 117) and triploid (n = 131) siblings generated from two females (A and B). Three main axes of morphometric variation were consistent, and these accounted for 60.8 and 57.6% of the total variability in females A and… 
Gut morphology of diploid and triploid Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua
Some differences in the digestive system of these two ploidy groups that could have an influence on nutrient utilization and performance capacity in triploids compared to diploids are highlighted.


Older triploid fish retain impaired reproductive endocrinology in the European sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax.
Evaluated growth, gonadal development and reproductive endocrinology of older triploid (3n) European sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax suggest that older 3n D. labrax retain functional sterility in both sexes, and 3n females might reach larger sizes than 3n males and their 2n counterparts in this species.
Altered body shape as a morphometric indicator of triploidy in Indian catfish Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch)
Only the ratio between standard length and body depth (SL/BD) was found to be a precise indicator of triploidy in Indian catfish Heteropneustes fossilis under the authors' experimental conditions.
Induction of triploidy and gynogenesis in teleost fish with emphasis on marine species
The methodologies used to induce, verify, and assess performance of both triploids and gynogenetics of these marine species, including mainly sparids, moronids and flatfishes, are focused on.
The Physiology and Behavior of Triploid Fishes
Artificially produced triploids generally differ from conspecific diploids in three fundamental ways: they are more heterozygous, they have larger but fewer cells in most tissues and organs, and their gonadal development is disrupted to some extent.
Geometric morphometrics reveals body shape differences between sympatric redfish Sebastes mentella, Sebastes fasdatus and their hybrids in the Gulf of St Lawrence
Body shape variability of specimens of hybrid origin was greater than that of either parental species, with features ranging from S. mentella-like to S. fasciatus-like, suggesting the role of introgression in generating morphological variability is emphasized.
Shape ontogeny and variation in the sharpsnout seabream, Diplodus puntazzo (Cetti 1777)
Spline diagrams showed that shape differences between the two populations were related to the comparatively more advanced ontogenetic state of reared fish, at the studied size range.
