(18) He showed that at least for the unit ball particle model considered here with a nucleolus at a distance k from the centre: (i) one-ray invariator, estimator of the surface area, is simpler and more efficient than the surfactor, and (ii) one-intercept invariator, estimator of the volume, is more efficient than the one-ray nucleator.
Oocytes at this stage were found in slides made from tissues of females in all maturity stages, unlike the Chromatin nucleolus oocytes, which were observed only in immature females.

Morphological changes in developing oocytes have been described for several species of teleosts (Grau et al., 2009; Chen et al., 2010; Lubzens et al., 2010; Mohamed, 2010) including changes in the size of the gonad and oocyte, the nucleolus (Thiry and Poncin, 2005), follicular epithelium (Quagio- Grassiotto and Guimaraes, 2003) and development of the yolk (Hartling and Kunkel, 1999).
