Hydrocephalus in burbot (Lota lota L.) larvae

Abstract
During an experiment aimed at elucidating the nutritional requirements of burbot (Lota lota L.) larvae, the latter displayed a dorsal swelling of the cranium. Histological examination revealed dilated brain ventricles (hydrocephalus internus). Bacterial culture of the content of the swelling was negative. Slightly elevated copper concentrations were found in the culture water resulting in an increased larval body copper content. This is the first reported case of hydrocephalus in burbot larvae.
