Abstract
    Tasmanian Atlantic salmon were held at water temperatures of 6, 11 or 16 degree C from late vitellogenesis and plasma steroid levels and ovulation were assessed. Ovulation was delayed at 11 degree C relative to 6 degree C, and inhibited at 16 degree C, prior to temperature reduction. Pre-ovulatory changes in levels of gonadal steroids occurred first at 6 degree C then at 11 degree C but did not occur at 16 degree C before temperature reduction. The quality of ova from fish held at 16 degree C was significantly reduced. These results demonstrate apparent temperature inhibition of endocrine processes associated with maturation but suggest that acute temperature manipulation may restore ovulation in heat-exposed fish. However, 17 beta -estradiol (E sub(2)) levels were lower at 16 degree C, suggesting that vitellogenesis may also be affected
