Genetic control of invasive fish: technological options and its role in integrated pest managementR. E. Thresher, K. Hayes, N. J. Bax, J. Teem, T. J. Benfey and F. Gould, Biological Invasions, 16:1201-1216. 2013.
Genetic options for the control of invasive fishes were recently reviewed and synthesized at a 2010 international symposium, held in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. The only option currently available "off-the-shelf'' is triploidy, which can be used to produce sterile males for a ...
