abstract

  • Sex reversal technology, realized through androgenic gland (AG) manipulation, was recently introduced as a process for production of all-male producing broodstock. This technology exploits however, a relatively small number of sex-reversed broodstock. Thus, both genetic improvement via a breeding program and prevention of inbreeding are needed to ensure the sustainability of such technology. Three wild strains of prawns originating from geographically (though not necessarily genetically) isolated locations in India [Gujarat (G) …
