Abstract:Laboratory breeding of annual fish is often impaired when fish fail to inflate the swim bladder after hatching. These fish, which are known as belly-sliders, cannot swim in the water column, moving mainly on the bottom of water.

To identify how the initial filling of the gaseous vesicle is compromis… Show more
