Abstract

Two different cryopreservation methods were compared and an optimal dilution ratio for the use of controlled-rate freezer (CRF) was established for Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis) sperm. Progressive motility (72. ±. 15%) and curvilinear velocity (VCL, 146. ±. 11. μm/s) of sperm cryopreserved with CRF did not reduce significantly compared to fresh sperm [progressive motility (90. ±. 4%), VCL (173. ±. 24. μm/s)]. On the other hand, progressive motility (62. ±. 15%) and VCL (120. ±. 21. μm/s) of sperm cryopreserved with the conventional floating frame technique were significantly lower when compared to the fresh control. Sperm in both cryopreserved groups showed significantly higher straightness [STR, CRF (84. ±. 4%), frame (84. ±. 2%)] than in the fresh control group (68. ±. 4%). Perch sperm cryopreserved with CRF at a dilution ratio of 1:20 showed significantly higher progressive motility (49. ±. 6%) than at a ratio of 1:5 (39. ±. 6%) and showed significantly higher VCL (129. ±. 11. μm/s) than at dilution ratios of 1:10 (112. ±. 17. μm/s) and 1:5 (115. ±. 9. μm/s).
