|Title:||Retardation of ovarian growth and depression of serum steroid levels in the tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus, by cortisol implantation||Authors:||FOO TET WEI,JOHN
|Issue Date:||15-Aug-1993||Citation:||FOO TET WEI,JOHN, Lam, T.J. (1993-08-15). Retardation of ovarian growth and depression of serum steroid levels in the tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus, by cortisol implantation. Aquaculture 115 (1-2) : 133-143. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Female Oreochromis mossambicus were implanted with cortisol suspended in cocoa-butter for the evaluation of the chronic effects of cortisol on reproduction. Implant doses of 1.5 and 3.0 mg/g body weight, mimicking the effects of long-term chronic stress, suppressed various reproductive parameters over the 18-day treatment period. Most fish treated with cortisol showed reductions in body weight. Oocyte size and gonadosomatic index of treated fish became significantly lower than the control after 9 and 12 days of treatment, respectively. The retardation of oocyte growth was accompanied by depression of serum testosterone and oestradiol-17β levels. © 1993.||Source Title:||Aquaculture||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/106884||ISSN:||00448486|
