Seasonal changes in seawater adaptability and plasma levels of prolactin and growth hormone in landlocked sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) and amago salmon (O. rhodurus).

Abstract

In order to clarify the roles of prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GH) in the development of seawater adaptability in salmonids, seasonal changes in salinity tolerance, plasma PRL, and plasma GH were examined in juvenile landlocked sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) and amago salmon (O. rhodurus). Assessed by the 24-hr seawater-challenge test, the… (More)
