Abstract

The neural circuitry for social behavior and aggression appears to be evolutionarily conserved across the vertebrate subphylum and involves a complex neural network that includes the hypothalamus as a key structure. In the present study, we evaluated the changes in monoamine levels in the...

Abstract

In natural spawning grounds, breeding round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, males are exposed to various social stimuli, including high density of same-sex competitors and separation from females. We hypothesize that breeding males subjected to overcrowding in the wild experience high stress that...

Abstract

In aquaculture, fish are exposed to a range of unfavourable environmental conditions. Amongst these, stocking density has attracted considerable attention as inappropriate densities may compromise welfare and negatively impact production. However, the recommendations for stocking remain elusive....

Abstract

The brain nanopeptide arginine vasotocin (AVT) and its mammalian homolog arginine vasopressin are involved in the regulation of social and reproductive behavior. We investigated the relationship between social rank formation and the brain AVT system in the false clown anemonefish (Amphiprion...

Abstract

The social status of hatchery-reared juveniles of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar at the age of 11-19 months in conditions of lack of shelters was investigated experimentally. It was demonstrated that biochemical differentiation in such juveniles begins at the age of 13 months-one month before the...

Abstract

Whilst studies on cetaceans have focused on a few populations of just a few species, various complex behaviours and social structures that support the notion that cetaceans should be regarded as intelligent animals have been revealed. The evidence to support this is reviewed here and is best...

Abstract

Monoaminergic systems play a crucial role in linking behaviour and physiology. Here the physiological and behavioural effects of metal exposure in relation to monoaminergic systems were considered by exposing rainbow trout dyads, demonstrating stable dominance relationships, to cadmium or lead....

Abstract

The zebra fish has been a preferred subject of genetic analysis. It produces a large number of offspring that can be kept in small aquaria, it can be easily mutagenized using chemical mutagens (e.g., ethyl nitrosourea [ENU]), and high-resolution genetic maps exist that aid identification of novel...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were to characterize rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and neuropeptide Y (NPY) cDNAs and to determine their mRNA levels in response to social stress. Standard cloning techniques were used to obtain cDNAs, sequences for trout NPY...
