The changes in GSI and HSI of Pandalus kessleri were monitored during an annual reproductive cycle. GSI reached a peak when ovaries were composed of yolky oocytes and decreased sharply during the spawning season. HSI followed a similar pattern. The changes in the concentrations of progesterone- and estradiol-17β-like substances in the hemolypmh were also investigated. Progesterone levels increased at the onset of vitellogenesis and decreased during vitellogenesis. In contrast, estradiol concentrations rose during the peak of vitellogenesis and dropped after the release of mature eggs from the gonad.

Munro, Angus D.; Lam, Tom J. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1996)Despite their great variety of reproductive strategies, a general characteristic of most teleosts is that (where known) natural reproduction shows a long-term periodicity, even in tropical habitats (e.g. see contributions ...
Effect of juvenile hormone and serotonin (5-HT) on mixis induction of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis Muller Gallardo, Wenresti G.; Hagiwara, Atsushi; Snell, Terry W. (Elsevier, 2000)Juvenile hormone (JH) and serotonin (5-HT) were previously shown to enhance mictic (sexual) female production of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis in batch cultures. To explore the basis of these effects, experiments were ...
