Comparison of heat and hydrostatic pressure shocks to induce triploidy in steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) by Guoxiong Cai( Book )

10 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Triploid female salmonids are known to be sterile and thus may offer certain advantages for aquaculture. This study was conducted to compare various temperature and pressure shocks for the induction of triploidy in steelhead trout, an anadromous form of Oncorhynchus mykiss. Thermal or hydrostatic pressure shocks were administered 25 min post-fertilization to groups of steelhead trout eggs. Thermal shocks ranged from 26C-36C, lasting from 1.25-20.0 min. Pressure shocks ranged from 5.5 to 8.3 x 10-4 kPa, lasting from 2-6 min. Triploid induction was evaluated by measurement of the major axis of erythrocyte nuclei
