Abstract
    Four analogs of GnRH at a dose of 10 µgm/kg/day for five days were used to induce ovulation in common snook, Centropomus undecimalis. These were salmon (sGnRH), chicken (cGnRH-II), seabream (sbGnRH), and mammal (mGnRH). Ovulations were induced and viable larvae were obtained using all but the sbGnRH. Fish receiving a placebo pellet or those with no treatment did not ovulate.
