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.


Production of meiotic gynogenetic and triploidsea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax L. 1. Performances, maturation and carcass quality
Overall, striking qualitative differences between diploid and triploid fish were found at the age of 34 and 45 months, although the results varied in a gender-specific manner, and the superiority of diploids over their triploids was confirmed during the final growing period and more clearly so in females.
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.
Geometric morphometrics and internal anatomy in sea bass shape analysis (Dicentrarchus labrax L., Moronidae)
The use of the combined approach proposed is recommended in the description and quantification of shape features and particularly in the context of fish quality assessment in the assessment of finfish quality.
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.
Comparative analysis of growth performance and sperm motility between precocious and non-precocious males in the European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax, L.)
Growth performance and sperm quality between the early-maturing males (1-year-old precocious fish) and their counterparts, the normal maturing fish which mature 1year later, were compared in the sea bass, suggesting similar reproductive success of both types of males around 2years of age.
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.
Genetic, hormonal and environmental approaches for the control of reproduction in the European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.)
The present work reviews the latest scientific advances on the genetic and physiological control of the sex and the process of puberty in the sea bass to provide tools to alleviate some shortcuts in its industrial production.
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.
