Our major objectives are to complete the development of a simple, efficient and reliable technology for the induction of spawning and sperm production in striped bass (Morone saxatilis) and related species, based on sustained administration of highly potent analogs of GnRH (GnRHa) via polymer-based delivery systems, and to gain a basic understanding of the mechanisms involved in GnRH synthesis at the level of the GnRH gene.
