services: Non-desensitizing analoges of Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone GnRH for the induction of ovulation in Fish Farming and Farm Animals

previous experience: We have applied our techonogy and our novel GnRH Analogues in fish hatcheries namely Rio Pesca and Thalassa in Patras Gulf and Hiliadou Doridos. In particular we applied our novel synthetic GnRH angalogues in sea bass and sea bream with excellent ovulation results (in vivo stimulation with more than 400.000 eggs per fish immidiatelly). This was well above that stimulated by GnRH (100.000 eggs per fish).
