Timi and Eszti spent 10 days at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, working with the research team of Dr. Juan Asturiano. Our stay was financed by the AQUAGAMETE COST action.
The main topic of our investigations was the comparison of protocols for European eel (Anguilla anguilla) sperm cryopreservation, furthermore new developments in this topic were also carried out. The results of these experiments are going to be published in the JoVE, for this purpose all the methods were recorded on video.
