The objective of this study was to identify a photolabile period suitable for reducing precocious gonadal maturation in juvenile male sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) through the exploration of discrete windows of continuous light (LL), 1–2 months in duration, in late summer-early autumn. Somatic growth, 11-ketotestosterone plasma levels, and the rates of… CONTINUE READING
