Changes in plasma melatonin levels and pineal organ melatonin synthesis following acclimation of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) to different water salinities
TLDR
Increased external salinity promotes melatonin synthesis in the pineal organ of rainbow trout by enhancing synthesis of AANAT protein independently of its regulation by light.
Photic and circadian regulation of melatonin production in the Mozambique tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus.
Seasonal Variations in Clock‐Gene Expression in Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar)
TLDR
It is proposed that the clock‐gene system is actively expressed in Atlantic salmon, and, furthermore, as has been reported in homeothermic vertebrates, it appears that clock expression is daylength‐dependent.
Early development of circadian rhythmicity in the suprachiamatic nuclei and pineal gland of teleost, flounder (Paralichthys olivaeus), embryos
Circadian rhythms enable organisms to coordinate multiple physiological processes and behaviors with the earth's rotation. In mammals, the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN), the sole master circadian
Clock‐Controlled Endogenous Melatonin Rhythms in Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus niloticus) and African Catfish (Clarias gariepinus)
TLDR
Interestingly, in both species, melatonin levels significantly decreased prior to the onset of light, which in catfish reached similar basal levels to those during the day, demonstrating that melatonin production can anticipate photic changes probably through circadian clocks.
DIURNAL EXPRESSION OF CLOCK GENES IN PINEAL GLAND AND BRAIN AND PLASMA LEVELS OF MELATONIN AND CORTISOL IN ATLANTIC SALMON PARR AND SMOLTS
TLDR
The diurnal expression of clock genes (Per1-like, Cry2, and Clock) in the pineal gland and brain of Atlantic salmon parr and smolts in freshwater, as well as plasma levels of melatonin and cortisol are described.

Lack of Circadian Regulation of Melatonin Rhythms in the Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) in vivo and in vitro
TLDR
Results indicate that melatonin production in the sockeye salmon is driven by light and darkness but lacks circadian regulation.
Circadian Rhythm of Melatonin Release From the Photoreceptive Pineal Organ of a Teleost, Ayu (Plecoglossus altivelis) in Flow‐Thorough Culture
TLDR
The ayu pineal organ contains all the three essential components of the circadian system (a circadian clock, the photoreceptor responsible for photic entrainment of the clock, and melatonin generating system as an output pathway) and should provide a useful model for analysing the physiological and molecular basis of the vertebrate circadian system.
Photic and circadian regulations of melatonin rhythms in fishes.
TLDR
The results suggest that all salmonids lack circadian regulation of melatonin rhythms, and that the physiological functions ofmelatonin in the circadian and photoperiodic systems differ among fishes.
Regulation of melatonin secretion in a photoreceptive pineal organ: an in vitro study in the pike
TLDR
It is strongly suggested that the pineal of the pike contains a circadian oscillator--synchronized by the photoperiod--which generates the rhythms of NAT activity and of melatonin release.
Presence of an intrapineal circadian oscillator in the teleostean family Poeciliidae.
TLDR
Data suggest that a circadian oscillator residing in the pineal of the sailfin molly also appears to be present in all of the poeciliid representatives tested in this system, supporting the notion that the presence of a pineal clock occurs at the family level of taxonomic organization.
Regulation by Light and Darkness of Melatonin Secretion from the Superfused Masu Salmon (Oncorhynchus masou) Pineal Organ
TLDR
Results indicate that melatonin secretion from the superfused pineal organ of masu salmon is regulated not by an intra-pineal circadian oscillator but by the environmental LD cycles, via local photoreceptors.
Rhythmic melatonin secretion in different teleost species: an in vitro study
TLDR
The results demonstrate that pineal organs of all species maintain a rhythmic secretion of melatonin under light:dark cycles and complete darkness, and strongly suggest that most fish possess endogenous intrapineal oscillators driving the rhythm ofmelatonin production.
