Higher returns in prawn aquaculture: Pilot program to create production stocks that are all female

Female penaeid prawns grow faster and may have higher feed conversion efficiency than do males. If a technique could be devised to bias the sex ratio of larvae produced so that the proportion of females in each brood outnumbered the males, the commercial grower could achieve dramatically...
