  • Abstract. To investigate the relative cost of protogynous versus protandrous sex change we induced sex change in each direction in Gobiodonhistrio (Gobiidae) and then compared growth, body condition and biochemical condition between sex-changed and non-sex-changed fish in treatment and control groups. Sex change in each direction was induced by establishing pairs of adult males and pairs of adult females on isolated coral colonies. Heterosexual pairs were used as controls. For both males and… CONTINUE READING
