Induced spawning of sea bass, Lates calcarifer, and rabbitfish, Siganus guttatus, after implantation of pelleted LHRH analogue
Cited times in Scopus
Captive Lates calcarifer broodstock at Tigbauan, Iloilo (Philippines) were implanted with cholesterol-based pellets of the LHRH analogue D-Trp6-desGly10-LHRH ethylamide or D-hArg(Et2)6, Pro9-NHet-LHRH at doses between 9.0 and 23.5 μg/kg body weight. In May, one of ten LHRH-treated females released partially hydrated ova into the tank 4 days after implantation. In July, at least one (and probably four) of five LHRH-treated females spawned in the tank 2 days after implantation; 2.6 million hatchlings were collected. In August, both LHRH-treated females spawned in the tank 2 days after implantation; 978 000 hatchlings were collected. None of the sham-operated control fish spawned in any of the experiments. Captive Siganus guttatus broodstock implanted with silastic-based pellets of the LHRH analogue D-Nal (2)6LHRH spawned 1–2 days earlier than sham-operated controls.

The ultrastructure of the hepatocytes of the giant seaperch, Lates calcarifer (Bloch) (Pisces: Centropomidae), during starvation and refeeding with different diets. Avila, Enrique M. (The Marine Biological Association of Hongkong, 1986)Three groups of immature seaperch acclimated in the laboratory on a mixed commercial pellet and minced trashfish diet were starved for 30 days. Thereafter, the first group was starved for 7 more days, the second was refed ...
