As a flatfish, the turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) is one of the most important farmed fish species with great commercial value, which has a strong sexual dimorphism on growth rate and sexual maturity. In this study, using histology, the basic information on proliferation and migration of germ cells and early gonadal development during sex differentiation in turbot were described in detail. There were six to nine individual primordial germ cells (PGCs) with large nuclei until 15 days post… CONTINUE READING

The undifferentiated gonads with no morphological indications of sex differentiation grew larger with the increase in germ cells and somatic cells number / size from 20 to 35 dph .
Meanwhile , in presumptive ovaries of type II gonadal tissue ( with a club - like shape ) , the germ cells proliferated and induced in two different populations of germ cells .
