The 888-page, two-volume book is a comprehensive resource that covers all aspects of sex control in aquaculture, and was written by internationally-acclaimed scientists. Wang, who serves as the Principal Scientist and Director of the Aquaculture Research Center and Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding Laboratory at The Ohio State University South Centers, was the editor of the book alongside Francesc Piferrer and Song-Lin Chen. 

The book’s first edition was published in January 2019 by Wiley-Blackwell.
