Quantification of ovarian condition in fish: A safer, more precise alternative to established methodology
Coward K., Bromage NR.
The ability to accurately quantify ovarian condition in cultured species of fish is of paramount importance in the understanding of their reproductive biology and the development of appropriate culture conditions. Here, we discuss stereological analysis, a mathematically proven technique that determines 3-dimensional topology and geometry from 2-dimensional thin sections, as a safer and more precise replacement for existing methodology. © 2002 Ifremer/CNRS/Inra/IRD/Cemagref/Éditions scientifiques et médicales Elsevier SAS.
