Increased secretion of cortisol, the most important corticosteroid of teleost fish, is a primary indicator of stress. Although cortisol secretion is under multiple control, the pituitary gland has a dominating role. For all vertebrates ACTH is generally considered the most important factor mediating pituitary control of corticosteroid secretion during stress. α-MSH may be of importance in addition to or instead of ACTH, depending on the type of strcssor.
