Sperm Quality of Hatchery-Reared Lake Trout Throughout the Spawning Season

  title={Sperm Quality of Hatchery-Reared Lake Trout Throughout the Spawning Season},
  author={Katelynn Johnson and Ian A E Butts and Chris C. Wilson and Trevor E. Pitcher},
The objective of this study was to investigate variation in sperm quality metrics (motility, velocity, linearity, longevity, and density) of hatchery-reared Lake Trout Salvelinus namaycush throughout the spawning season. Seasonal variation in sperm quality was investigated using both a regression and repeated-measures approach. Sperm was collected from the same 16 individuals over four sampling periods, separated by 3-week intervals. Regression analyses showed that 7–27% of the variation in… CONTINUE READING
