Lessons from established breeding programs: terrestrial and aquatic animals

Some relevant components of selection program theory and implementation are reviewed. This includes pedigree recording, genetic evaluation, balancing genetic gains and genetic diversity and tactical integration of key issues. Lessons learned are briefly ...

Effects of relatedness and inbreeding on reproductive success of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

It is well established that progeny of inbred matings are less fit than those of outbred matings, and that inbred individuals suffer from reduced viability and fertility. Inbreeding can be avoided by dispersal of progeny or by actively avoiding mating ...

Evaluation of the new fluorescent internal tag (soft visible implant alphanumeric tag) in the freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii

The new version of the polyester visible implant alphanumeric tag (VI Alpha tag; Northwest Marine Technology Inc., Shaw Island, Washington, USA) was evaluated in the giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) under laboratory conditions. The new VI ...

The worldwide status of carp culture

Common, Chinese and Indian major carps are cultured wherever traditional markets exist. However, their culture potential elsewhere is limited by market acceptability and lack of culture experience. This review considers cultured carp bionomics; regional ...

Developments in the breeding of cultured fishes.

The controlled breeding of finfish for culture is reviewed with special refer-ence to recent developments and persistent problems. Freshwater species are at present cultured on a much larger scale than brackishwater and marine species which have potential ...

Estimates of strain additive and non-additive genetic effects for growth traits in a diallel cross of three strains of giant freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) in Vietnam

Additive genetic, heterotic and strain reciprocal effects were estimated using a diallel cross of two local wild strains of the giant freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) in Vietnam (Dong Nai and Mekong) and a third domesticated Hawaiian strain, ...

Selective breeding for increased body weight in a synthetic breed of Egytian Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus: response to selection and genetic parameters

Selection for harvest weight was performed in a fully pedigreed synthetic line of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in Egypt for two generations. Records were available over three spawning seasons (2002, 2003 and 2004) for weight at the beginning of ...
