Abstract
    Doses of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) were compared to determine the lowest dose that would induce ovulation and provide the best egg quality and larval survival in common snook. Five females in each group were injected with doses of 50, 100, 250, 500, 1,000, and 2,000 IU/kg body weight (BW), respectively. Doses of 50 and 250 IU/kg BW produced less ovulations than 500, 1,000, and 2,000 IU/kg BW. A dose of 500 IU/kg BW of HCG produced consistent ovulation, good egg quality and larval survival.
