Mair, G.C. and Little, D.C. (1991) Population control in farmed tilapias. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 14(3), pp. 8-13.
Under the majority of culture practices, the reduction or elimination of reproduction in culture ponds results in significantly improved yields of marketable fish. An examination is made of existing methods for the control of reproduction in tilapias (Oreochromis spp.). The generation of all-male tilapia by hormonal sex reversal and genetic manipulation is discussed in detail, indicating the various advantages and disadvantages of both techniques.
