This study, involving more than 10 years of research on selective breeding, has shown that selective breeding can create considerable phenotypic divergence in rainbow trout lines when targeting a specific pathogen.
The history of shrimp farming in Ecuador, including technical development, genetic improvement, mangrove reforestation and sanitary barrier implementation.
More R&D and investment is needed to address various ongoing issues in shrimp farming, including genetic improvement, nutritional requirements and feed ingredients, health management and other issues.
In eight genetic improvement programs in seven different countries, growth improvements have been constant in all programs, with annual improvement rates between 5 and 12 percent. Improvements in survival rates are less predictable and less consistent.
This article from Australia’s CSIRO details the "race" to breed oysters genetically predisposed to resist Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome (POMS), a disease that is harmless to humans but so lethal to oysters that it can kill more than 90 percent of a crop
A new breeding program for genetic improvement of red tilapia was established at the Fish Research Center (FRC), Suez Canal University, in Ismailia, Egypt. It aims to improve the growth rate of the fish and to provide significant benefits to
The authors are exploring alternative models for shrimp breeding that address genotype-environment interactions with solutions that could advance breeding in South and Central America.
Genetic improvement breeding programs for carp in a number of Asian countries have delivered genetically fast-growing strains to farmers and producers.
Breeding efforts at Aquatec Genearch Aquacultura in Brazil have centered on specific pathogen-free white shrimp lines imported from the United States.
