Homologous recombinant tilapia growth hormone (rtGH) was tested for its effects on calcium metabolism in freshwater tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus . Fish were fed an optimal ration of 5% of their body mass per day. A positive correlation was found between the amount of food given and the branchial calcium influx. In male tilapia, the mean calcium influxes were 5.80 and 11.71 mmol h21 100 g21 when they were fed 2 % and 5% food, respectively. In female fish fed 5% food, the calcium influx was 6… CONTINUE READING
