Aquaculture and fisheries biotechnology: genetic approaches.

Book cover for Aquaculture and fisheries biotechnology: genetic approaches.

Description

This book covers topics essential to the study of fish genetics, including qualitative and quantitative traits, crossbreeding, inbreeding, genetic drift, hybridization, selection programs, polyploidy, genomics and cloning. This fully updated second edition also addresses environmental risk, food safety and government regulation of transgenic aquatic organisms, commercial applications of fish biote...

Chapter 20 (Page no: 293)

Environmental risk of aquatic organisms from genetic biotechnology.

This chapter discusses the use of transgenic or genetically modified organisms in aquaculture, its advantages and disadvantages, particularly its impacts on local biodiversity and native gene pool. Also discussed are the applications of genetic sterilization in aquaculture.
