During natural or induced smoltification, Atlantic salmon exhibit spring elevations in olfactory activity and plasma L-thyroxine (T4). To determine whether T4 influences olfactory activity, we administered T4 to late parr in early April and measured olfactory bulb electroencephalogram and olfactory epithelium electroolfactorogram responses to L-alanine nasal stimulation, plasma T4 and 3,5,3'-triiodo-L-thyronine (T3) levels, and hepatic and brain monodeiodination. T4 treatment raised plasma T4… CONTINUE READING
