Barriers to spawning limit aquaculture of commercially fish species. This report describes using polymeric controlled release delivery systems to deliver superactive anlogs of the reproductive hormone gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) to seabream, rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon and Pacific coho salmon. The in-vitro release patterns and their relationships to gonadotropin secretion are studied, as are the effects of the delivery systems on ovulation and spawning.
