Most applications of genomic selection (GS) have so far been in animals, especially dairy cattle, although theoretical studies have also been conducted for maize. For the last 50 years, commercial breeding programmes for dairy cattle have been based on the progeny test scheme, which results in an...

This review documents the extent to which management of salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) on farms has a measurable impact on the health of wild salmon. The salmon louse is a persistent and often severe parasite of farmed salmon throughout the Northern Hemisphere. High farm densities in some...
