To assess whether induced vitellogenesis in longfinned eels mimics that in naturally maturing conspecifics, female eels were artificially matured and steroid hormone status and oocyte cytology during oogenesis were evaluated. Successful induction of vitellogenesis was evident from the presence of yolk granules in the ooplasm of salmon pituitary homogenate… CONTINUE READING
