Scope for further optimization of selective breeding in aquacutlure species
Global Aquaculture Advocate 2003
Rye, Morten; Gjerde, Bjarne
Genetic improvement programs are key for the development of better performing stocks in aquaculture. Their crucial importance for better utilization of limited feed and land resources is widely recognized, and implementation of well-designed programs is strongly advocated as reflected in FAO’s Code of Conduct of Responsible Fisheries. This article briefly describes the general structure of familybased selection programs, and identifies areas where recent developments in genetics and related fields may further increase their efficiency for aquaculture species.
