Özet

Levels of biochemical parameters in seminal plasma and physical parameters of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) semen were determined and compared. Seminal plasma contained 80.51 +/- 31.48 mmol/l Na+, 46.21 +/- 12.58 mmol/l K+, 4.65 +/- 1.57 mg/dl Ca2+, 3.48 +/- 1.18 mEq/l Mg2+, 112.5 +/- 25.93 mmol/l Cl-, 1.33 +/- 0.76 mg/dl glucose, 0.15 +/- 0.09 g/dl protein, 2.55 +/- 2.47 mg/dl cholesterol, 8.0 +/- 2.84 mg/dl triglyceride, and 31.65 +/- 40.78 mg/dl urea. Semen volume was 19.9 +/- 21.43 ml, spermatozoa motility 60.0 +/- 30.09%, duration of spermatozoa movement 174.0 +/- 1.82 s, spermatozoa concentration 1.52 +/- 0.70 x 10(9)/ml, total spermatozoa number 44.25 +/- 64.59 x 10(9), and pH 6.7 +/- 0.25.
