|Title:||INDUCED SPAWNING OF THE COMMON SNOOK, Centropomus undecimalis, IN CAPTIVITY USING GnRH-a IMPLANTS|
|Author:||MARIA DE JESUS CONTRERAS GARCIA|
|Abstract:||Culture of C. undecimalis shows great potential as this species tolerates handling and adapts easily to captivity. However, the difficulty in achieving spawning in captivity is a major obstacle for the development of commercial scale farming. Spawning of common snook was achieved using GnRH-a implants in single 100 and 200 µg doses per fish; control group specimens received no hormone and did not spawn. Both GnRH-a trial doses resulted in spawning with up to 100% fertilization rates per experimental unit, and a range of 60 – 76% per treatment. A 50 – 100% hatching rate was obtained and larvae were between 1.56 + 0.08 and 1.98 + 0.05 mm total length after yolk sac absorption.|
