Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding

The Inheritance of desirable traits in Aquaculture & Fisheries has been the evolution of selective breeding for thousands of years. However, the understanding of genetics, which is the biological basis of heredity and variation among organisms, has deepened dramatically in the last several decades. This new knowledge expands the potential applications of genetics and breeding technologies in aquaculture practices. The scientists of the Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding Technology use a combination of selective breeding and genetic research. Goal is to help revitalize the economic value of Aquaculture around the globe, and to improve the aquaculture industry meet humanity's growing appetite for seafood.  The focus of Aqua professionals is to provide genetically superior brood stock to industry. Initial efforts emphasized development of disease-tolerant strains of different species, whose population is more in our advanced environmental conditions.  

Aquaculture genetics shows immense potential for enhancing production in a way that meets aquaculture development goals for the new millennium. This scientific session covers the progress made to date, the areas where genetic knowledge can make a positive difference to aquaculture, thus the challenge facing geneticists and aquaculturists alike, is deciding which strategies are necessary, beneficial and acceptable in terms of social and environmental safety, many techniques are now being applied to aquatic animals in an effort to overcome many different production challenges.
