The effect of environmental salinity on the thyroidal response, measured by plasma concentrations of thyroxine (T4), to exogenous bovine thyrotropin (bTSH) was assessed early and late in the smoltification of coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch). A single injection of 100 mIU bTSH significantly increased plasma T4 concentrations in fish in both fresh water… CONTINUE READING
