Selective breeding for genetic improvement of brood stock

Thomas, P C (2003) Selective breeding for genetic improvement of brood stock. In: Winter school on Recent Advances in Mariculture Genetics and Biotechnology, 4- 24 November 2003, Cochin.



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 cannot be transmitted to the next generation. The genetic improvement on the other hand is inherited by the next generation and therefore, more important. The wide variations among the individuals in every population provide ample scope for genetic manipulations for developing genetically superior lines and strains.
