Aquaculture and Fisheries Biotechnology: Genetic Approaches by Rex A. Dunham

By Rex A. Dunham

The expansion fee of globally aquaculture has been sustained and quick, and the explosion of study in genetic biotechnology has made major impression on aquaculture and fisheries, even if power for far higher development exists. Aquaculture and Fisheries Biotechnology covers themes necessary to the learn of fish genetics, together with qualitative and quantitative features, crossbreeding, inbreeding, genetic float, hybridization, choice courses, polyploidy, genomics and cloning. This totally up to date moment variation additionally addresses environmental possibility, meals protection and govt legislation of transgenic aquatic organisms, advertisement purposes of fish biotechnology and destiny concerns in fish genetics. it's crucial studying for researchers and scholars in fish genetics and fish molecular genetics.

This is not consistent with compensatory gain. Possible effects of variation in dissolved oxygen level were not analysed. Potential effects of varying temperature days were not analysed. When on full feed, the feed conversion ratios were equivalent, which is again inconsistent with compensatory gain. Data analysis is misleading in the case of the evaluation of compensatory gain for channel catfish in tanks (Gaylord and Gatlin, 2000). If the data are converted to mean weights and the per cent gain is examined when the full-fed and 4-week-starved fish are of the same size, the per cent gains are virtually identical.

Although communal stocking of channel catfish is valid, the effect of environmentally induced initial size differences on final size must still be considered. Although communal evaluation can accurately rank genotypes, caution must still be exercised in interpreting results and making recommendations prior to commercial application of genetically enhanced aquatic organisms. Potential genotype–environment interactions relative to the magnitude of the differences between genotypes in comparison with separate evaluation could occur even though the rank of the genotypes would be the same.

Short treatments 15–35 min after fertilization (approximately half the period of meiosis I in triploid eggs) yielded individuals with tetraploid and heptaploid cells. Longer treatments 7–43 min after fertilization (about three-quarters of the period of meiosis I in triploid eggs) yielded embryos with 100% heptaploid cells. Tetraploid induction was most consistent when treatments were applied to eggs from individual triploid females rather than from multiple pooled females (Eudeline and Allen, 2000).
