Influence of temperature on the growth and survivability of sichel larvae Pelecus cultratus reared under controlled conditions

This study analyzed the influence of temperature on the rearing of sichel Pelecus cultratus larvae under controlled conditions. Five constant temperature regimes were tested: 14 °C, 18 °C, 22 °C, 26 °C and 30 °C. The larvae were reared for 30 days in aquaria with 50 dm3 working capacities. The larvae density was 40 individuals/dm3 and the fish larvae were fed live artemia nauplii. ...



Physiological and genetic basis for variation in migratory behavior in the three-spined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus

Closely related species of fish often exhibit different migration patterns. Even within species, anadromous and resident populations can be found in a diverse number of taxa. Although several environmental factors that regulate behavioral and physiological changes associated with fish migration have been identified, the genetic mechanisms underlying the variation in the ability to ...
