We report effect of diet and gonadotropin supplement on 5-7 year 6 male and female sturgeon (Acipenser nudiventris) reared 2 per fiberglass tanks in 4000 m3 water. Males were supplemented vitamins without soybean whereas females were fed both. Females were injected 10µg/kg gonadotropin twice and males 20 µg/kg once to induce breeding Significant differences (P < 0.05) were found for testosterone between mature and immature males and females. 17α-hydroxyprogesterone level was 0.10 ± 0.054 and 0.03 ± 0.005, and 17β- estradiol 47.5 ± 1.91 and 21.6 ± 3.02ng/ml in propagated and immature females, respectively. Significant differences (P<0.05) were found in serum albumin in immature and propagated females but not for serum glucose, cortisol, cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Key words: Acipenser nudiventris, gonadotropin, progesterone, propagation, diet.
