    Genomic selection in pig breeding is a potential tool to improve maternal traits as traditional breeding programs focus on performance traits in the sire lines. A simulation study has shown that GS has the potential to increase genetic gain for maternal traits in pigs (Lillehammer et al., ).Cited by: Selective Breeding in Aquaculture: an Introduction (Reviews: Methods and Technologies in Fish Biology and Fisheries Book 10) - Kindle edition by Gjedrem, Trygve, Baranski, Matthew.

    Family-based selective breeding programs, which enable effective selection for all types of traits including those that require destructive tests (e.g. carcass quality) or disturbing tests (e.g. disease challenge), is now established as the industry standard . Performance gains through genetics are an area of aquaculture innovation that is ripe for further exploitation. Aquaculture genetics programs that use family-based selection and work with pathogen-free broodstock of commonly cultured species like salmon, shrimp, and tilapia are generating outstanding results and the room for further benefits is considerable.

Although aquaculture as a biological production system has a long history, systematic and efficient breeding programs to improve economically important traits in the farmed species have rarely been utilized until recently, except for salmonid species.

"This book is the most comprehensive text covering the important aspects of genetics and selection programmes in aquaculture to date." "All in all, this volume is the most complete and informative text on fish genetics for aquaculture." (Aquaculture Research, 37, ).

Although aquaculture as a biological production system has a long history, systematic and efficient breeding programs to improve economically important traits in the farmed species have rarely been utilized until recently, except for salmonid species.

This means that the majority of aquaculture production (more than 90 %) is based on genetically unimproved stocks.5/5(1). Get this from a library.

Selection and breeding programs in aquaculture. [Trygve Gjedrem; AKVAFORSK (Norway);] -- This book describes the basic elements in the theory of animal breeding and inheritance of quantitative economic traits and the way in which this technology can be implemented in selective breeding.

The book's main objective is to stimulate development of efficient selective breeding programs in aquaculture, the world's fastest growing industry for animal protein production.

Selective breeding (also called artificial selection) is the process by which humans use animal breeding and plant breeding to selectively develop particular phenotypic traits (characteristics) by choosing which typically animal or plant males and females will sexually reproduce and have offspring together.

Domesticated animals are known as breeds, normally bred by a. Background. In current family-based aquaculture breeding schemes, many important traits are tested on the sibs of the candidates. The test information is used to calculate breeding values for the selection of parents [].Only 50% of the genetic variation i.e.

Selective breeding programmes for medium-sized fish farms. FAO Fisheries Technical Paper. Rome, FAO. ABSTRACT: This manual, written for extension workers and aquaculturists, deals with methods for selective breeding programmes to improve cultured populations of food fish on medium-sized fish farms.

This chapter introduces the principles of genome selection, provides an example of how to conduct genome selection (GS) and some perspectives for aquaculture species. The idea of using molecular markers in animal breeding has been around for quite some by: 2.

• The most common form of selection applied in agriculture and aquaculture breeding programs is directional selection • The aim is to improve traits of economic importance.

The effect of directional selection for heritable traits is a change in gene frequency at the loci affecting the trait in the next generation. 18 3 The Success of Selective Breeding in Aquaculture Fig.
