Monosex female population can be obtained by the application of exogenous oestrogen such as oestradiol (E-2). Steroids can also be applied in anabolic purposes. However, there was no account, of applications of oestradiol valerate (E2V) in fish studies. This study was performed to describe the direct E2V application in sex reversal to produce all female population and its effect on the growth and survival rate of rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss.
