This investigation examines the influence of implants containing 11-ketotestosterone (11KT), 17β-estradiol (E2), and 3,5,3′-triiodo-l-thyronine (T3) on astaxanthin metabolism in sexually immature individually tagged Arctic charr. The fish (initial average weight 427 g) were maintained in freshwater for 40 days, and weekly implanted intraperitoneally with oil-based injections containing either 11 KT, E2 or T3 at levels of 0.1, 1.0 and 0.1 mg (100 g body weight (BW))−1, respectively. The control… CONTINUE READING
