Abstract

Alyssa Budd studied the epigenetic effects of temperature on sex change in barramundi, revealing the first evidence for temperature-induced epigenetic changes in the gonads of a sequential hermaphrodite. Alyssa’s results further our understanding of sex change in fish and highlight the potential for temperature as a sustainable method for sex control in aquaculture.
