Determination of the spawning history of Pacific saury Cololabis saira from rearing experiments: identification of post-spawning fish from histological observations of ovarian arterioles


Rearing experiments under controlled temperature conditions were carried out to establish a methodology for estimating the spawning history of the Pacific saury Cololabis saira. The experiments involved histological examination of ovarian arterioles at various maturational stages. We found that pre-spawning immature fish lacked Victoria blue (VB)-positive… (More)
