dc.description.abstract The present paper describes the effects of Tribulus terrestris, a masculinization agent, on the sex reversal of African catfish, Clarias gariepinus. One-day-old hatchlings were immersed in water containing an extract of T. terrestris at a rate of 0, 3, 6, or 9 g/30 l water for 30 days. The 9 g treatment resulted in 80.42% male populations. Morphological and histological examinations of the gonads in all groups revealed no intersex fish. Histological examination of fish treated with T. terrestris revealed no damage to the testes or ovaries. Despite differences in sex ratio, growth rate, ovaries, and testes, fish treated with T. terrestris were histologically similar to fish from the control groups. Survival ranged from 72% in the 3 g group to 80% in the 9 g during treatment and did not significantly differ from the control (p>0.05). The best growth was obtained in the 9 g treatment. en_US
