Hi everybody out there!

Does anybody know something about the histology of zebrafish 
ovaries. The special question is about how the animals lead mature 
eggs to the porus. We always thought, that the ovary just releases 
the eggs into the coelom and then they leave the body. However, 
we were just discussing about some histological images of 
zebrafish ovary and some structure we have no explanation for 
were seen. So, at the moment we are quite unsure whether there 
exist some 'channels' exit that lead mature eggs from the ovary to 
the porus?  

We would really appreciate some comments, thanks

Also feel free to send Mail to: ubiebers at ix.urz.uni-heidelberg.de

Kind regards
