Record #161265:

Whether to reproduce or not: immune suppression and costs of parasites during reproduction in the Arctic charr / Frode Skarstein, Ivar Folstad, Ståle Liljedal.

Title: Whether to reproduce or not: immune suppression and costs of parasites during reproduction in the Arctic charr / Frode Skarstein, Ivar Folstad, Ståle Liljedal.
Author(s): Skarstein, Frode.
Folstad, Ivar.
Liljedal, Ståle.
Date: 2001.
In: Canadian Journal of Zoology. (2001.), Vol. 79(2) (2001)
Abstract: Authors investigated differences in parasite infection and immunological activity between reproductively active and inactive charr. Spawning fish had greater macroparasite infection than nonspawning or resting fish. Difference does not seem to arise from group differences in consumption of carotenoid-containing intermediate hosts. Rather, spawning males may be more susceptible because of smaller spleen, which is important for producing lymphocytes, than resting fish.
