Fig. 18. Changes in the level of melano-macrophage deposition (MMD) during the experiment in starved (○) and fed groups (□) of hatchery-reared masu salmon, in starved (●) and fed groups (■) of wild masu salmon, and in the hatchery-reared fish sampled from the river (△). Asterisks show significant differences in the MMD level between the starved group and the fed group at the same sampling time in each fish group (P < 0.05, One-way ANOVA). Cross marks designate significant differences in the MMD level from the hatchery-reared group sampled from the river (P < 0.05, One-way ANOVA).
