Production of YY super male of Nile tilapia (a diagram)

This 1-page diagram describes the production of the YY super male of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). When the YY male is mated with normal females of Nile tilapia, the progeny should be all-males. The mass production of YY males has been described in the diagram.

Note: although this diagram can be used independently, the diagram is required for the lecture titled “Applications of genetics in aquaculture and fishery” (Principles – selection & hybridization – sex-reversal – advanced breeding technologies).
