Abstract

The large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) is an economically important marine species with the highest annual production among the farmed marine fishes in China. However, the aquaculture industry of this species is suffering from severe problems that include weakened disease resistance,...

Abstract

The extensive use of genomic selection (GS) in livestock and crops has led to a series of genomic-prediction (GP) algorithms despite the lack of a single algorithm that can suit all the species and traits. A systematic evaluation of available GP algorithms is thus necessary to identify the optimal...

Abstract

Marker-assisted selective breeding of fish with higher levels of resistance towards specific pathogens may improve fish health, but the impact of host genotype on susceptibility to multiple pathogen infections is still poorly investigated. This study examined the resistance in rainbow trout ...

Abstract

Epinephelus fuscoguttatus (Forsskål), or brown-marbled grouper, is a favoured species among aquaculture farmers for its relative easy management and high commercial value. Disease outbreaks, however, negatively impact farmers' livelihoods by reducing fish harvest yields. Traditional selective...

Abstract

Recent advances in the role of vitamins as functional nutrients are challenging the established vitamin requirements of salmonid species. New generation aquafeeds that replace marine ingredients with more sustainable protein and omega-3 sources further highlight the need to revise the vitamin...

Abstract

Genomic selection has been widely used in aquaculture breeding of major aquaculture species. However, the complex environment and mass spawning characteristics make most of the current aquaculture species reproduce the next generation through natural mating, which results in uneven parental...

Abstract

Ascites disease, caused by Edwardsiella tarda, is one of the most destructive diseases in turbot (Scophthalmus maximus). Genetic improvement of host germplasm aiming at resistance to E. tarda is the fundamental way to control this disease. However, genetic parameters for this trait in turbot are so ...

Abstract

Genetic improvement programs of the Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) have been implemented worldwide aiming to enhance growth, survival and disease resistance traits. The use of low-density SNP panels for performing high-throughput, low-cost paternity assignments, kinship determination...

Abstract

Marine bivalves account for roughly 14% of aquaculture production worldwide and ca. 33% of this production is represented by oysters. A number of disease-causing agents of oysters have the potential to create economic loss to shellfish farmers. Disease outbreaks due to Vibrio coralliiyticus are...

Abstract

Salmon rickettsial septicaemia (SRS), caused by the bacteria Piscirickettsia salmonis (P. salmonis), is responsible for significant mortality in farmed Atlantic salmon in Chile. Currently there are no effective treatments or preventive measures for this disease, although genetic selection or genome ...
