Abstract: The objective was to develop a suitable freezing method to cryopreserve Brycon opalinus (Characiformes) sperm. Extenders (NaCl and glucose at 325 and 365 mOsm/kg), cryoprotectants (dimethyl sulfoxide=dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and methyl glycol=methyl glycol (MG)), equilibration times (15 and 30 min), thawing temperatures (30 and 60 °C), and straw sizes (0.5 and 4.0 mL) were tested. Sperm were frozen in a liquid nitrogen vapor vessel at -170 °C and subsequently stored in liquid nitrogen. Post-thaw sperm quality was always evaluated in terms of motility (expressed as percentage of motile sperm), duration of motility and vitality (eosin-nigrosin staining, expressed as percentage of intact sperm). The best freezing method was also tested for fertility and hatching (expressed as the percentage of fertilized eggs). Post-thaw sperm quality was highest when sperm were cryopreserved in Glucose 365 mOsm/kg and MG, after a 30-min equilibration and thawed at 60 °C for 8 s, of regardless straw size: 74±7% motile sperm, 47±4 s of motility duration, 69±3% intact sperm, 64±4% fertilization and 63±3% hatching. The freezing method developed in the present study was efficient and can be used to maximize larvae production for both aquaculture purposes and for conservational programs, since B. opalinus is a threatened species.
