It is essential to define an optimized standard method to assess the fish sperm quality to minimize the differences between the results obtained by different laboratories. Only this optimization and standardization can make them useful from academia to industry.This study presents the validation of sperm motility assessment using a CASA-Mot system for three endangered diadromous fish species: European eel (Anguilla anguilla), Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii). To attain this goal, different technical and data processing methods were tested: 1) magnification lens (x10 and x20), 2) Spermtrack® reusable chambers (10 and 20 μm depth) and 3) different frame rates (50 ≥ FR ≤ 250). The results suggested that the sperm motility assessment for eel, salmon and sturgeon should be performed at 200, 250 and 225 frames s-1, respectively. Moreover, to obtain a high number of analysed spermatozoa in less time and a natural movement of the sperm cells, it is recommended to use x10 objective and 20 μm depth. In conclusion, different technical settings influence sperm kinetic parameters and should be validated for each fish species to allow the comparison of results between laboratories.
