THE INFLUENCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS ON SPAWN FERTILIZATION AND EARLY EMBRYOGENESIS IN CARP
Vera Granaci, Alisa Morari- Pirlog
The influence of antioxidants FH2 and FH3 on the biological integrity of the conserved by refrigeration (0 - 4°C) Cyprinus carpio semen material was studied. The addition of antioxidants in the milieu contributed to the increase of the frozen spermatozoids survival longevity with 33.33%, fecundity ability with 13.42% (in case of FH2), respectively with 10.39% (in situation of FH3), while early embryogenesis with 3.56% and 2.34%, respectively given with control variant.
Key words: antioxidants, fish semen material, biological integrity, conservation, refrigeration
