Sex differentiation in an all-female (XX) rainbow trout population with a genetically governed masculinization phenotype.

Abstract

Sex determination is known to be male heterogametic in the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss; however, scattered observations that deviate from this rather strict genetic control have been reported. Here, we provide a detailed morphological and histological characterization of the gonadal differentiation and development (from 43 days postfertilization to… (More)
