Developmental stage of Atlantic salmon parr regulates pituitary GH secretion and parr-smolt transformation.

^Atlantic salmon respond to increased photoperiod by elevation of plasma growth hormone (GH) levels during the period leading up to parr-smolt transformation, both under natural and farming conditions. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the ontogeny of this response, by exposing juvenile Atlantic salmon to increased daylength at different stages of development. Salmon fry were reared on 12
