Author(s): Rinaldi, Muhammad Zairin Jr, Dinar Tri Soelistyowati and Imron

Abstract: The present research was aimed to investigate the effect of E. longifolia extract to change the sex direction to male fish through larvae immersion. The completely randomized design consisted of different doses of E. longifolia extract (20, 40, 60 mg L-1) compared to the control with 0.5 mg L-1 17α-methyltestoterone (MT) and no immersion, each with three replications. A fifty larvae of ten days old after hatching were immersed during eight hour and reared for 60 days after treatment. The result showed that larvae immersion using E. longifolia extract 60 mg.L-1produced 67.44 % of male significantly different compared to the control without immersion 52.71 % (p<0.05), while control with MT reached 72.87% of male.
