Abstract
    African catfish were treated with 50 ppm E2, 11-KA or MT between 13 and 40 days post hatch. None of the treatments induced permanent and complete sex reversal. Fish treated with MT showed paradoxical feminization and were occasionally strippable. A cross between an intersex fish and a normal female produced an all-female progeny.
