Genetic improvement of the herbivorous blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala)

Selection experiments with the herbivorous blunt snout bream or Wuchang bream (Megalobrama amblycephala) were started in 1985. Mass selection for size and length/depth ratio resulted in a significant increase in growth and better shape, while inbreeding ...

Response to bi-directional selection for frequency of early maturing females in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

The present study was carried out to investigate a simple method for recording the occurrence of early maturing females in Nile tilapia at a fixed time after stocking and to estimate the response to bi-directional selection for this trait and a possible ...

Simple broodstock management to control indirect selection and inbreeding: Indian carp example.

Following a survey of the important traits of Indian carp broodstock at some southern Indian hatcheries, it was found that the broodstock selection was size selective, exerting strong, negative selection of prematuration growth rate and positive selection ...
