Plasma Nesfatin-1 is not Affected by Long-Term Food Restriction and does not Predict Rematuration Among Iteroparous Female Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

The metabolic peptide hormone nesfatin-1 has been linked to the reproductive axis in fishes. The purpose of this study was to determine how energy availability after spawning affects plasma levels of nesfatin-1, the metabolic peptide hormone ghrelin, and sex steroid hormones in rematuring female...
