Studies were conducted to determine the influence of some LHRH analogues on gonadotropic hormone (GtH) secretion in two species of trout. The observations indicated that synthetic LHRH and various stimulatory LHRH analogues are approximately equipotent in these fish. This is an unexpected result considering the superactive properties of these analogues demonstrated in mammals. An inhibitory LHRH analogue was also tested in the trout with the result that powerful inhibition of LHRH induced GtH release was obtained.
