The objective of this study was to evaluate oxidative stress in round goby exposed to different water salinities. Fish were exposed to three water salinities (0, 5 and 20 ppt) for 33 days. After exposure, fish were sacrificed and livers were sampled. Lipid peroxidation in the liver was assessed by measurement of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS). Our results showed large variation in peroxidation response among fish regardless of the water salinity. Fish exposed to a salinity of 5 ppt presented the highest lipid peroxidation level, whereas fish exposed to 20 ppt showed the lowest. These results indicate a strong influence of salinity on round goby lipid peroxidation.
