Endocrine growth regulation of adult Atlantic salmon in seawater: The effects of light regime on plasma growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor-I, and insulin levels.

^Plasma growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), and insulin were measured in two groups of Salmo salar L. during a one-year study. The fish were reared under either a simulated natural photoperiod (SNP) from January to December or a regime of continuous light from January to June, followed by SNP until December (LL/SNP). Plasma GH levels during spring were low, and lower in the LL/SNP fish (<
