Mud crabs, Scylla spp., are commercially important large-size marine crustaceans in the Indo-West Pacific region. As females have the higher growth rate and economic value, the production of all female stocks is extremely essential in aquaculture. However, the sex determination mechanism is still unclear. Development of sex-specific genetic markers based on next-generation sequencing proved to be an effective tool for discovering sex determination system in various animals.

Induction of sex inversion in juvenile grouper, Epinephelus malabaricus, (Bloch and Schneider) by bi-weekly injections of 17 alpha-methyltestosterone. Tan-Fermin, Josefa D.; Garcia, Luis Maria B.; Castillo, Antonio R. Jr. (Society for the Study of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Reproduction, University of Hong Kong, 1989)Groupers (Family Serranidae) are protogynous hermaphrodites. Natural sex inversion of different species occurs at 2-11 years of age . The scarcity of wild mature males and the length of time to change sex underline the ...

Withdrawal of exogenous 17-alpha methyltestosterone causes reversal of sex-inversed male grouper Epinephelus suillus (Valenciennes) Tan-Fermin, Josefa D. (San Carlos Publications, 1992)The protogynous hermaphrodite groupers Epinephelus suillus were given bi-weekly injections of 17 alpha-methyltestosterone (MT) intramuscularly for three to six months. Spermatogenesis occurred after three months of MT ...
