Abstract Share this page

One problem in aquaculture is obtaining brood because many commercially important species are incapable of spontaneous maturation under artificial conditions. Commercial shrimp hatcheries commonly use eyestalk ablation to stimulate gonadal maturation in shrimps. Research has been conducted on the inhibition of reproductive maturation by hormones originating in the eyestalk glands and on other endocrine sources (e.g.,brain, thoracic ganglion, ovary, mandibular organ, androgenic gland and Y-organs) to determine their roles. Alternate techniques for acceleration of gonad maturation through the use of synthetic hormones or neurotransmitters may benefit aquaculture. Neurohormones and neuroregulators have been shown to accelerate gonadal maturation but an effective delivery technique must be developed for use in a large-scale aquaculture operation.
