Short-term storage over several days as well as cryopreservation of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) sperm were studied. Two extenders, Ringer 200 and artificial seminal liquid (ASL2), are suggested for semen collection in order to avoid the deleterious effect of urine contamination, and for the purpose of short-term storage between 0 and 15 °C. Oxygen atmosphere is not suitable for turbot sperm storage. Turbot spermatozoa undergo cryopreservation with a high rate of success especially in a sucrose solution with 10% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and 10% egg yolk.
