Short-Term Serum Prolactin Concentrations in Goldfish (Carassius auratus) Subjected to Serial Sampling and Restraint
Journal of the Fisheries Research Board of Canada
Serum prolactin concentrations in serially sampled goldfish (Carassius auratus) did not vary significantly between 30 s and 3 min after initial capture. A marked decrease in prolactin concentration was noted 9–17 min after initial capture followed by a recovery at 30–48 min. Although there was a circadian variation in prolactin concentration, the pattern of response to capture and sampling did not vary significantly among the times tested.
