AbstractFull Text

The method of long-term preservation of mammalian semen in deep-frozen condition provides great opportunities for development and improvement of the reproduction system of farm animals. Using this method it is possible to check the breeders on the quality of offspring so as to maximum use the...

AbstractFull Text

Transgenesis is the revolutionary science of making a genetically modified organism. Interestingly, fish offer easier genetic manipulation compared to mammalian counterpart, as they bred easily and large number of eggs is laid by female (higher fecundity) and have independent embryonic biology. The ...

AbstractFull Text

In recent years, the genetic monitoring of broodstocks in fish farming has been greatly highlighted due to its importance in the management and improvement of their production and conservation. Current study evaluates the genetic diversity of four Tambaqui broodstocks (Colossoma macropomum) in the...

AbstractFull Text

Many environmental impacts can be attributed to fish farming and there is a need to explore new ways of reducing environmental impacts, such as fish genetic improvement. The environmental consequences of genetic improvement in thermal growth coefficient (TGC) and in feed conversion ratio (FCR) were ...

AbstractFull Text

A selective breeding programme of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) based on a fully pedigreed population of the GIFT (Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia) strain has been carried out using Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) method for genetic evaluation and selection. Two lines were created ...
