Friedrich M., 1996. Impact of transportation and environmental change on the levels ACTH and cortisol in the blood of carp (Cyprinus carpio L.). Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 26 (1): 49-53.
Present studies yielded the following conclusions: the transport caused statistically significant rise of ACTH and cortisol concentrations in the blood of carp reared in the thermal-effluent channel. Usage of glass tanks for accommodating the fish caused prolongation of the stress reaction and maintenance of high ACTH and cortisol levels beyond the 7-day period monitored in the present experiment.
