Abstract

In this study it was shown that dark coloured post-larvae of Senegalese sole Solea senegalensis, at two different ages, had elevated cortisol concentrations compared with lighter coloured individuals. As melanophore-stimulating hormone levels were not elevated in dark coloured fish, it is possible that this hormone may not be the main melanotropic hormone involved in stress-related skin darkening. © 2005 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.
