Turbot larvae were exposed to dilutions of the water soluble fraction (WSF) of crude oil (1–25%), in a laboratory flow-through system. Whole body immunoreactive cortisol (IRC) content of premetamorphic 345 degree C day and early metamorphosing 450 degree C day larvae (23 and 30 days post hatch, respectively) was elevated when exposed to 25% WSF for 6 h, but the lower WSF concentrations did not induce IRC elevations. Larvae of 450 degree C days exposed to WSF for 6 h and then left in clean sea… CONTINUE READING
