    Abstract

    In red porgy Pagrus pagrus subjected to 3 weeks of chronic stress by crowding, plasma cortisol remained significantly higher in crowded fish compared to controls. There was no significant effect of crowding on plasma glucose levels. When the crowded fish were subjected to an acute handling the plasma cortisol response was similar to that of the uncrowded fish. No significant differences were found between the groups. The changes in plasma glucose following acute handling were also similar in both crowded and uncrowded fish.
