Techniques of producing monosex or sterile population of fish for aquaculture -- a review of selected literature.
In: 10th Annual Conference of the Fisheries Society of Nigeria (FISON)
, 16-20 November 1992
, Abeokuta, Nigeria.
The need to develop techniques that can make the male grow faster in many species of fish as well as the female in some other species cannot be over-emphasized. Monosex culture of the faster growing sex can increase production if the method is reliable. The use of such techniques as manual sexing, sterilisation, hybridization, gynogenesis, androgenesis polyploidy and sex-reversal can provide solutions or partial solutions to the problems associated with sexual difference, sexual maturation and unwanted reproduction
