Resumen:
The present literature review analyzes the current state of artificial control of sexual maturity in fish culture using hormone therapy, evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of different technological strategies available. The discussion covers from the first successful attempt conducted by Houssay (1930), Argentina, up to the most effective techniques of slow release and the use of dopamine inhibitors. In addition, the evaluation of the use of non traumatic methodologies that up until now have not been entirely effective is covered.
