4th Workshop on Gonadal Histology of Fishes

AuthorsWyanski, David M.; Brown-Peterson, Nancy
Issue Date1-Jun-2010
AbstractThe 4th Workshop on Gonadal Histology of Fishes continued a series of successful workshops exploring aspects of fish reproduction that began in 2001. The first workshop occurred in February 2001 at a meeting of the Southern Division of the American Fisheries Society in Jacksonville, Florida, and was initiated by fisheries biologists in the southeastern United States who felt the need to meet other scientists that were using histology as a tool to investigate reproduction in fishes. The second workshop occurred in July 2005 at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the third workshop was held in July 2006 immediately prior to the Joint Meetings of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists in New Orleans, Louisiana. Attendance as well as geographical representation continued to grow with each subsequent workshop. Topics of presentation and discussion at the first two workshops focused on marine teleosts, and included ovarian cycling, reproductive classification, sex transition in hermaphrodites, distinguishing immature vs. inactive mature specimens, and identification of histological artifacts such as postmortem decay of postovulatory follicles. Topics at the third workshop broadened to include freshwater fishes and elasmobranchs, and a major focus of this workshop was presentations and discussions leading to the development of a standardized terminology for describing the reproductive cycle in fishes. The Gonadal Histology Workshops became truly international at the 4th workshop in Spain, with 100 participants from 23 countries participating in presentations and discussions. Oral and poster presentations centered around four major themes (reproductive strategies and gametogenesis, fecundity and skip spawning, temporal patterns, and terminology and methodology), and plenary discussions each day highlighted the importance of histology in achieving an understanding of complex aspects of fish reproductive biology. One of the goals of the 4th Workshop on Gonadal Histology of Fishes was a broad dissemination of information based on the presentations at the workshop. Previous workshops produced a printed booklet of extended abstracts of each presentation that was distributed to all workshop participants. However, this information was not in a citeable format, and was unavailable to non-participants. Thus, the Organizing Committee of the 4th Workshop decided to compile the extended abstracts of the 2009 Workshop into an editor-reviewed Proceedings, and post this Proceedings on the internet so that the articles are widely available and fully citeable. These Proceedings present a summary of each oral and poster presentation, and it is hoped that their wide distribution will advance the broad field of fish reproductive biology. In addition to the Proceedings, full papers based on 13 presentations from the workshop will be published in the on-line, peer reviewed journal Marine and Coastal Fisheries in a special section “Emerging Issues and Methodological Advances in Fisheries Reproductive Biology.”
