Abstract/Summary

Increases in epidermal and dermal thickness, and a reduction in the number of superficial goblet cells, occur in the skin of maturing male brown trout. These changes are correlated with rising levels of plasma 11-ketotestosterone and it is suggested that control of integumental structure in male fish is mediated by androgenic steroids during sexual maturation.
