Abstract:The individual polar and neutral lipids of plaice (Pleuronectes platessa L.) ovaries, testes and serum were determined, just before spawning, in February 1984 and March 1985.

The testes, however, contained almost equal amounts of PC and phosphatidylethanolamine. The polar lipid levels in plaice gonads, expressed as a perce… Show more
