Aquaculture and Fisheries Biotechnology - An Expert Guide on the Genetic Approach is a proven and useful guide by Rex Dunham from the Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures at Auburn University in Alabama, USA.
This complete guide covers everything you need to know about the fish biotechnology and aquaculture from the environmental effects and phenotypic variations to population genetics.
Do you know when aquaculture actually began? Do you fully understand why there are environmental concerns regarding genetic engineering .and biotechnology? This powerful guide will inform you of the importance of stock density and mortality, all about hybrid viability and how their behaviour, growth and disease resistance compares to other fish
Also learn about the cloned populations, how it's done including the results, viability and disease resistance. The guide also covers how the temperature effects the sex determination and the constraints they have to deal with.
This expert guide offers diagrams, charts and interesting information on gene mapping, gene isolation, combining of genetic enhancements and the selection process. Also find out about the genetic evaluations, environmental risks and government regulations regarding aquaculture, fisheries biotechnology and the genetic approach.
