Abstract
    In 1988-1992 and 1995-1997 we studied the reproductive system of silver carp from the netcages in the reservoir of Chernobyl nuclear pover plant (the accident happened in 1986). The structure of germ cells was investigated using light and electron microscope. In 1989-1992 the progeny of fishes that survived in the accident was obtained. In 1996 two dwarf sex- matured individuals (female and male) were found among 10 fishes hatched in 1991. The female was 0.24 m and 250 g; the male was 0.31 m and 461 g (usually 0.6 m and 3000g and more).
