Morphological development and allometric growth were investigated in hatchery-reared Capsian shemaya, Alburnus chalcoides, from hatching to the juvenile stage at a temperature of 25.13± 1.61℃. The newly hatched larvae were 4.69±0.27 mm in total length (LT). Mouth opened 3 days after hatching (DAH) and initial swimbladder inflation occurred at 5 DAH. Exogenous feeding started at 6 DAH and the yolk sac was completely exhausted one day later. Squamation was initiated at 46 DAH and completed until 57 DAH. Based on the external morphology, early development of A.chalcoides was divided into five periods: yolk-sac stage 0-6 DAH (4.69-7.61 mm LT), preflexion stage 7-9 DAH (7.73-7.88 mm LT), flexion stage 10-18 DAH (8.20-9.60 mm), postflexion stage 19-45 DAH (9.30-19.97 mm LT) and juvenile stage 46-57 DAH (21.66-27.25 mm LT). During the first 4 weeks after hatching, there was an evident priority to develop feeding, swimming and respiratory ability by promoting intense growth in head and tail parts. Following this period, there was a clear reduction in growth coefficients. The allometric growth changes in Capsian shemaya during early life reflect the selective organogenesis directed towards survival priorities. © Published by Central Fisheries Research Institute (CFRI) Trabzon, Turkey.

This study was carried out to investigate the interactive effects of dietary leucine and valine on the performances of two sizes Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus. Two groups of fish with average initial weights of 0.43. ±. 0.01. g and 41.2. ±. 2.0. g (mean. ±. S.D.) were fed with diets containing two levels of leucine (1.6 and 5.0% of diet) with three levels of valine (1.2, 1.8 and 2.5% of diet, as a 2. ×. 3 experimental design) and the control diet for 56. days and 30. days, respectively. In trial 1, after the fish fed with test diets for 56. days, growth performance and nutrients utilization were evaluated. Interactive effects of leucine and valine were found on growth parameters (final body weight, body weight gain and special growth rate) of Japanese flounder. Not only antagonism was observed in high dietary Leu level groups but also the stimulative effect of increased dietary Val in low Leu level groups. Significant interaction was also found on feed conversion ratio of Japanese flounder fed with test diets, however, the fish whole body proximate compositions were not altered by the various diets. In trial 2, dietary Leu and Val dominated the plasma free Leu and free Val concentrations, but no antagonism was found. Interactions were also found on plasma LDH and GPT of test fish, and it was showed that for fish fed with high dietary Val level in low Leu (1.6% of diet) diet can protect the cells from oxidative stress. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

To investigate the ontogeny of Perccottus glenii, embryonic, larval and juvenile development of P. glenii were examined under captive condition. The fertilized eggs with numerous oil droplets were orange-pink in color, prolate spherical in shape and had average length of 3.32±0.14 mm and width of 1.24±0.04 mm. From fertilization to hatching, the ontogenesis of the fish spent more than 200 h, and the process of embryonic development was divided into 25 stages based on the morphological characteristics. The newly hatched larvae, with well-developed swim bladder and pectoral fins, measured 5.07±0.18mm in total length. Initial feeding occurred at day 2 after hatching (AH) and the complete absorption of yolk sphere was observed 3 days after hatching. At day 40 AH, scales and vertical pigment were found to be appear. Scales covered the entire body and all fins were well developed 70 days AH, at which time the juveniles reached the young stage with a total length (TL) of 24.74±4.28 mm. At day 140 AH, The fry with a TL of 29.57±4.65 mm, were morphologically similar to the adults except for size.
