The biological and biochemical effects of temperature on life-history strategy of female bullhead Cottus gobio were investigated. Fish from two populations (Bez Basin, south-east France) experiencing contrasted thermal environments (i.e. more or less stable) were reared during 4 months at three distinct temperatures (7, 9 or 12 degrees C). Both somatic (soma fresh mass and muscle triglyceride content) and reproductive (gonad fresh mass, fecundity, mean diameter of eggs and gonad triglyceride… CONTINUE READING
