Method for in vitro assessment of pineal light sensitivity in relation to melatonin production in Atlantic salmon

A method was developed to measure melatoning production in salmon pineal gland by in vitro incubations following exposure to different light regimes (photoperiods, intensities, and spectral compositions using narrow bandwidth filters). This method can be applied to investigate light sensitivity in fish species.
