Abstract
    Effects of reduced seasonal cycle and injections of LHRHa and pimozide on sexual maturation in perch (Perca fluviatilis) were investigated. 150 tagged perch were split into two groups and subjected to two months with decreasing temperature and day length followed by two months with increasing temperature and day length. One group was treated monthly with LHRHa (30 µg/kg) and pimozide (10 mg/kg). From October to December testosterone (T) levels in females increased from 0.2 to 16.4 nmol/l while estradiol-17 beta (E sub(2)) levels increased from 0.8 to 6.6 nmol/l. The sex steroids were not significantly higher in the hormone treated group than in the control group. 3 % of the treated females spawned at the end of the study, while no spawning was observed in the control group.
