Keywords:

  • functional genomics of stress, molecular biomarkers in fish CNS activity;
  • neurotrophin BDNF, in stress-induced adaptation;
  • aquaculture and growth enhancement, as “compensatory growth”;
  • Danio rerio, freshwater teleost zebrafish, as the most popular model;
  • molecular techniques in aquaculture, hindered by genetic information lack;
  • stress responses in fish, as primary, secondary, tertiary responses;
  • BDNF, gene structure, mRNA, and protein quantification after stress;
  • BDNF processing, a central mechanism in adapting to stress
