Abstract 1. 1. The relationship between gonadal maturation and serum calcium levels was studied in hake, Merluccius gayi gayi , and killifish, Fundulus heteroclitus . 2. 2. Sexually mature male and female hake were sampled in the field throughout the year. Serum calcium was higher in all sexually mature fish regardless of the season, indicating a gonadal effect on serum calcium levels. 3. 3. Male killifish adapted to constant laboratory conditions showed no change in serum calcium at different… CONTINUE READING
