The objectives of this study are to evaluate the effects of some basic factors, namely extender type, sperm volume, cryoprotectant concentration, cryopreservation and storage time, on the quality of Mekong giant catfish (MGC) sperm. The following results are obtained from conducted experiments. The sperm kept in Hanks balanced salt solution (HBSS) extender consistently produced good results in terms of motility. The highest motility grade (4.0) was observed after 12 hours of examination and…

Fertilizability of cryopreserved and cadaveric fish spermatozoa of freshwater catfish Pangasius sutchi (Fowler, 1937)
The results indicated that 15% of DMA with hanks balanced salt solution (HBSS) extender at a dilution ratio of 1:10 at −80°C proved to be suitable for cryopreservation of spermatozoa in P. sutchi, augments the feasibility of using cryop Reserved as well as cadaveric fish spermatozosa for the seedling production in the fresh water catfish Pangasius sutchi.
Genetics and Biotechnologies for Sustainable Aquaculture of the Black Tiger Shrimp Penaeus monodon
The black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon is one of the most important cultivated shrimp species. Reduced spawning potential and low degree of maturation of P. monodon in captivity crucially prohibit
Effect of omega-9 rich fish oil on antioxidant enzymes and relative immune gene expressions in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
Freshwater fish oil (FFO) was extracted from by-products of the fisheries industry. The amounts of omega-3, 6, and 9 fatty acids in the FFO were 1.38, 12.29, and 42.9 g/100 g, respectively. The diet
Fatty Acid Composition, Physical Properties, Acute Oral Toxicity and Antioxidant Activity of Crude Lipids from Adipose Tissue of Some Commercialized Freshwater Catfish
No sign of toxicity was observed for 14 days in female Wistar albino rats after receiving a dose of crude lipids at 5000 mg/kg, and their antioxidant activities by ABTS assay were 3.21, 4.53 and 6.00 mM Trolox per 1 g, respectively.


A sperm cryopreservation protocol for the loach Misgurnus anguillicaudatus and its applicability for other related species.
Based on this protocol, sperm from other loach species Lefua nikkonis, Misgurnus mizolepis and Barbatula toni were cryopreserved successfully and the fertilizability of the post-thawed sperm was 47% in comparison to the fresh sperm, at the minimum inseminating dose.
Motility and fertilizing capacity of frozen/thawed common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) sperm using dimethyl-acetamide as the main cryoprotectant
Using DMA as internal cryoprotectant in combination with the MK2/sugar extender proved to be very suitable for cryopreservation of common carp sperm, especially with regard to fertilization and hatching success.
Long-term cryopreservation of sperm from Mandarin fish Siniperca chuatsi.
This is the first report that the Mandarin fish (S. chuatsi) sperm can successfully fertilized eggs after long-term cryopreservation.
Cryopreservation of sperm of red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus)
It is demonstrated that refrigerated and cryopreserved sperm were each effective for the artificial fertilization of red snapper eggs.
Cryopreservation of carp sperm
In a series of fertility tests, the chemical constituency of the medium in which fertilization was attempted influenced the fertility of cryopreserved sperm.
Diluent for cool storage of the Japanese eel (Anguilla japonica) spermatozoa
The results indicate that the potassium ion is an essential constituent of the isotonic diluent for cool storage of the Japanese eel spermatozoa.
6 Fish Gamete Preservation and Spermatozoan Physiology
Because information about fish spermatozoa morphology, metabolism, and motility is rather scarce and scattered in the literature, these subjects are given particular attention.
Osmolality and potassium ion: their roles in initiation of sperm motility in teleosts.
Spermatozoa that are quiescent in electrolyte and nonelectrolyte solutions isotonic to seminal plasma show motility when the semen is diluted with hypotonic solution in freshwater teleosts (four
