A website tool for predicting triploidy in larval fish spawns

Jill A Jenkins, Bogdan Chivoiu & Rassa O Dale
This is an online tool called Ploidy Predictor. Triploidy is the condition in which three chromosome sets occur in somatic cells. Triploidization is the most practical, economical, and effective method for mass production of sterile fishes. Some examples include triploid oysters Crassostrea spp., Grass Carp Ctenopharyngodon idella, and Black Carp Mylopharyngodon piceus that are commercially cultured for consumption, weed and snail control, respectively. Triploidization limits the potential for establishment of wild populations. However, treatments used...
