  • Gonadal histology confirmed that Scarus ferrugineus is a diandric protogynous fish. The process of protogynous sex reversal was investigated through histological observations on the gonads of females changing sex to male. This process was divided into three stages on the basis of changes in the structure of the germinal and somatic elements. Ovaries of functional females (stages IV–V) were filled with vitellogenic oocytes during the breeding season but contained no trace of spermatogenic tissue… CONTINUE READING
