Abstract

Success in aquaculture depends on the use of animals with high genetic potential and application of sound management techniques. Though one can bring about improvement in the production performance of a population by environmental manipulations as well as through genetic manipulations, any improvement from the former can not be transmitted to the next generation. The genetic improvement on the other hand is inherited by the next generation and therefore, more important. In farm animals and plants application of genetic principles for breeding programmes have played an important role in increased productivity in accordance with the demands of the nation. Of late genetics has acquired an important place in fisheries and aquaculture with the following objectives.
