Introduction Psychological stress has well-known inhibitory effects on reproductive function ( Rivier & Rivest 1991 , Tilbrook et al. 2002 , Young et al. 2006 , Lynch et al. 2014 ), suppressing hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal (HPG

Introduction The classic response to chronic stress consists of an elegant, concerted interplay of two important pathways, the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA). The chronic activation of these stress

Introduction Challenges that disturb the homoeostasis of an animal can be met by an activation of the stress response. A key component of this response in fish involves the stimulation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–interrenal (HPI) axis

Introduction Stress disturbs many physiological processes, including reproduction. While multiple types of stressors, including psychosocial stress, have been demonstrated to decrease reproductive hormone secretion in many species, including
