Experiences in shrimp genetic improvement in seven countries

João Luís Rocha, Ph.D.

Selection to improve growth is easy, but difficult for resistance and tolerance Selecting for and achieving genetic improvements for growth in penaeid shrimp is easy, as there is a phenotype (weight or size) that we can measure rigorously. The fundamental mathematical equations of quantitative genetic theory, including the one predicting selection Response, were established in…
