Monosex strains of zebrafish

Dear colleagues,

I am researching endocrine disruption using the zebrafish model. 
Ideally I would like to expose males and females separately. I have 
seen from past messages in the group that adults can be sexed 
with reasonable accuracy from body shape and distended cloaca 
(in females). However, I wish to use juveniles and possibly even 
larvae. I know that it is possible to get monosex (genetic) carp and 
wondered if anyone knew of such a zebrafish strain.  

I would be grateful for any help,

James Wheeler
