Abstract
    We investigated the ontogeny of three gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuronal systems in the brain of red seabream, Pagrus major, using immunocytochemistry. Salmon (s) GnRH immunoreactive (ir) cells were first detected on one day after hatching (day 1) in the olfactory pit. Then, sGnRH-ir cells were observed along the olfactory nerve and in the telencephalon. Chicken (c) GnRH-II-ir axons and cell bodies were first observed in the midbrain tegmentum on day 3 and day 6, respectively. Immunoreactivity to seabream (sb) GnRH first emerged in cell bodies in the preoptic area (POA), in axons from the POA to the pituitary, and in the neurohypophysis around day 40. These results suggest that the terminal nerve (sGnRH), preoptic (sbGnRH), and midbrain (cGnRH-II) systems have distinct ontogenetic origins.
