Orji, R.C.A. (1998) Effect of transportation stress on hepatic glycogen of Oreochromis niloticus (L.). Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 21(3), pp. 20-22.
Oreochromis niloticus was subjected to transportation stress to investigate hepatic glycogen levels and mortality as indices of stress. Mortalities lasted up to three days after transportation, except in highly aerated samples. Heptic glycogen levels in transported fish were significantly lower in the controls. Stress appeared to be more intense when fish were transported at a high density and in a high salinity medium.
