Control of puberty in farmed fish.
Induction of triploidy and gynogenesis in teleost fish with emphasis on marine species
The methodologies used to induce, verify, and assess performance of both triploids and gynogenetics of these marine species, including mainly sparids, moronids and flatfishes, are focused on.
Effects of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Prostaglandins on Oocyte Maturation in a Marine Teleost, the European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)1
Evidence is provided for the participation of AA metabolism in GTH-induced oocyte maturation, and it is suggested that other PUFAs and PGs may play important roles in the induction of maturation in a marine teleost.
Brief treatment with an aromatase inhibitor during sex differentiation causes chromosomally female salmon to develop as normal, functional males
Treatment with a nonsteroidal inhibitor of aromatase, the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion from androgens to estrogens, for only 2 hours when the gonads were bipotent, caused genetic females to develop into normal males, providing strong support for Yamamoto's theory that androgens and estrogens are natural sex inducers in gonochoristic fish.
