Ontogeny and modulation after PAMPs stimulation of β-defensin, hepcidin, and piscidin antimicrobial peptides in meagre (Argyrosomus regius)
(Fish and Shellfish Immunology, 2017-08-24)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), components of innate immunity, play an important role in protecting fish. In this study we report the molecular cloning of full open reading frames and characterization of expression of three ...
Gamete quality and management for in vitro fertilisation in meagre (Argyrosomus regius)
The aquaculture of meagre (Argyrosomus regius) requires methods for the control of reproduction that enable the production of families from specific individuals for selective breeding programs. We experimentally determined ...
Reproductive success of a marine teleost was correlated with proactive and reactive stress‐coping styles
(Journal of Fish Biology, 2019-01-23)
The present study investigated the relationship between reproductive success and stress‐coping styles in gilthead seabream Sparus aurata in captivity. To characterise stress‐coping styles, a total of 22 breeders were ...
Artificial sex reversal of white grouper (Epinephelus aeneus) utilizing aromatase inhibitor (Fadrozole)
(Aquaculture Research, 2019-03-20)
The white grouper is a desirable aquaculture species that adapts to captivity, grows well and commands a high market price. However, little is known about reproductive biology or control of sex reversal of this protogynous ...
Parentage assignment, estimates of heritability and genetic correlation for growth-related traits in meagre Argyrosomus regius
Meagre is a relatively new aquaculture species with great potential in large scale European aquaculture. The primary objective of the study was to describe, for the first time, parentage allocation and assign offspring to ...
