Globally there is an increasing demand for aquaculture products. The aquaculture sector is relatively young and there is a need to increase productivity and profitability while reducing the impact on the environment. Major improvements can be made by establishing new and better selective breeding programmes. The European research project FISHBOOST will advance European aquaculture to the next level for six aquaculture species.
