The biology of triploid fish

Abstract

This review deals with major areas of triploidy research in fish. It includes not only methods for induction and detection of triploidy but also the impact of triploidy on morphology, anatomy, growth, haematology, energetics, behaviour, endocrinology and gonads in various species of fish, studied so far. The future prospects of research on triploid fish are discussed inviting researchers with diverse areas of interest in fish biology.
