The early history of fish genetics has recently been reviewed in chapters in books by Dunham () and Gjedrem () (but also see Benzie, ; Gjedrem ; Hulata ). The science of aquaculture genetics has grown quickly over the last 30 years alongside the ever expanding aquaculture industry in Europe and North America. This online course presents an overview of fish genetics. The emphasis will be on practical applications for aquaculture and fisheries management. The course consists of seven parts, which include 17 lectures (classes): Part I. Material Basis of Heredity and Cytogenetics of Fish .
Advancing the production efficiency and profitability of aquaculture is dependent upon the ability to utilize a diverse array of genetic resources. The ultimate goals of aquaculture genomics, genetics and breeding research are to enhance aquaculture production efficiency, sustainability, product qua . About the Editors. HAN-PING WANG is Principal Scientist and Director of the Aquaculture Research Center, and Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding Laboratory, at The Ohio State University, Piketon, Ohio, USA. FRANCESC PIFERRER is Research Professor and head of the Group of Biology of Reproduction at the Institute of Marine Sciences, Spanish National Research Council, 5/5(1).
This important and timely book brings together, for the first time, a wealth of scientific information, presented in a clear and understandable manner by Dr Joseph Smartt, who has many years' experience working in fish genetics and breeding. The book is a must-have purchase for all serious goldfish breeders, hobbyists and dealers, fish. The book consists of 12 chapters explaining mainly about tilapia biology, brood stock replacement and breeding plans, simple genetics, development and operation of mixed and monosex commercial.

Description: The genetic improvement of fish for aquaculture and related fisheries is a field of research that has seen considerable advance. This book examines the area and should be of interest to advanced students and researchers in animal genetics, fish biology and aquaculture.

This difference between aquaculture and livestock production is in spite of the fact that the basic elements of breeding theory are the same for fish and shellfish as for farm animals. One possible reason for the difference is the complexity of reproductive biology in aquatic species, and special consideration needs to be taken in the design of.
Genetic improvement programs within aquaculture species such as salmonids, tilapia, and catfish have resulted in % gain in growth rate per generation. Therefore, the real challenge for the next decade is to get the aquaculture industries to introduce effective genetic improvement programs using selective breeding.
Performance gains through genetics are an area of aquaculture innovation that is ripe for further exploitation. Aquaculture genetics programs that use family-based selection and work with pathogen-free broodstock of commonly cultured species like salmon, shrimp, and tilapia are generating outstanding results and the room for further benefits is considerable.
About this book A comprehensive resource that covers all the aspects of sex control in aquaculture written by internationally-acclaimed scientists Comprehensive in scope, Sex Control in Aquaculture first explains the concepts and rationale for sex control in aquaculture, which serves different purposes.
Description: Genetics and Fish Breeding provides a thorough review of this important subject, highlighting species which are bred commercially, such as salmon, trout, carp and goldfish.
The author, who is an acknowledged expert in this subject, has drawn together a wealth of information, providing a book which should be bought by all fish biologists, fisheries scientists, geneticists and aquarists.
Genetics and Fish Breeding gives an intensive survey of this vital subject, featuring species which are reproduced economically, for example, salmon, trout, carp and goldfish.
The writer, has drawn together an abundance of data, giving a book which ought to be purchased by all fish researcher, fisheries researchers, geneticists and aquarists.
"This book covers topics essential to the study of fish genetics, including qualitative and quantitative traits, crossbreeding, inbreeding, genetic drift, hybridization, selection programs, polyploidy, genomics and cloning.
This fully updated second edition also addresses environmental risk, food safety and government regulation of transgenic aquatic organisms, commercial applications of fish.
The authors review how genomics is being applied to aquaculture species at all stages of the domestication process to optimize selective breeding.
The book entitled “Genetics of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management” by Dr. M.S. Shah is published at the month of June This book is mainly based on basic and applied genetics for aquaculture and fisheries management at university level.
Selective Breeding in Aquaculture an Introduction Book Summary: The foundation of quantitative genetics theory was developed during the last century and facilitated many successful breeding programs for cultivated plants and t- restrial livestock.
The results have been almost universally impressive, and today nearly all agricultural production utilises genetically improved seed and animals. The goal of breeding programs is to provide commercial producers with superior fish that reflect improved production characteristics.
Farming of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) began over 30 years ago in the United States, and has since become one of the most successful aquaculture enterprises in the country. The species dominates U.S. The NWFSC's Quantitative Genetics & Aquaculture program looks to udnerstand how fish grow, resist disease and mature.
Researchers are appling breeding genetics and developing genomics tools to illuminate how animals adapt to culture situations, and also to detect and assess the consequences of interaction between escaped fish and wild fish.
The scientists of the Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding Technology Center (ABC) at VIMS use a combination of selective breeding and genetic research to domesticate the native Eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica for aquaculture.C. virginica is important both commercially and ecologically in Chesapeake Bay.
ABC's goal is to help revitalize the economic value of oysters in the Bay, and to. The book offers a practical and succinct overview—from existing methods and operations to recent trends and their impacts on aquaculture for the future.
Show less Induced Fish Breeding: A Practical Guide for Hatcheries takes a successive approach to explaining the use of breeding technology with proven scientific methods.As knowledge of systematic studies, including germplasm resources, biology, quantitative genetics, selection breeding, variety hybridization and molecular marker assisted breeding is needed to increase growth performance, this book provides comprehensive information that is suitable for aquatic genetic breeding researchers and undergraduate and graduate students in aquatic genetics and breeding.Journals & Books; Help; Aquaculture.
