The timing of ovulation and LH plasma levels were investigated in Arctic charr reared at 5 °C and 10 °C, exposed to the ambient photoperiod, or short or long-day photoperiod regimes during the prespawning period. The effectiveness of sGnRHa alone, or sGnRHa combined with a dopamine antagonist, in stimulating LH secretion and inducing ovulation was also investigated. With the natural photoperiod, ovulation occurred spontaneously at 5 °C, but was inhibited at 10 °C. A transition from 10 to 5 °C soon resulted in suppression of the inhibition. At 5 °C, the effectiveness of sGnRHa was similar to that of sGnRHa combined with pimozide in stimulating LH secretion and in...
