The ultrastructure of spermatogenesis and of the spermatozoon of Acanthopagrus schlegeli (Sparidae) are described. The testis is of the unrestricted type. Germ cells are surrounded by cyst cells. Spermiogenesis involves conspicuous modifications such as intracellular movements (diplosome and mitochondria migration, nuclear rotation, and depression) and structural changes (chromatin condensation, shape of mitochondria, and loss of cytoplasm). The mature spermatozoon has a spherical nucleus with… CONTINUE READING
