Book Description

December 15, 2001 0852382855 978-0852382851 1
Over recent years there have been major advances in the application of molecular, biotechnological and genetic techniques to a wide range of aquatic species. Until now, many working in a hands-on capacity in the area of aquaculture have not known what the benefits of this work could be to them. This important new book redresses this situation, providing clear details of the available scientific information and the direct application of techniques under simple and practical situations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

While new molecular techniques hold great promise for application in commercial aquaculture in the future, most aquaculture currently takes place under practical and often challenging conditions. Tremendous gains could be realized in most forms of aquaculture through the application of more traditional and practical approaches to genetic improvement, as detailed in this timely book.

Practical Genetics for Aquaculture provides reviews of the fundamental theory and examples of practical applications for numerous aspects of genetic improvement in aquaculture. Contents include thorough details of genetic concepts and terminology, chapters on genetic change for numerous traits and the resultant increased yields and profitability, control over reproduction, the development and performance of transgenic aquatic organisms and finally a chapter devoted to potential risks to aquatic habitats and populations posed by all forms of genetically improved cultured species.

Written in a user-friendly and succinct style by Dr C. Greg Lutz, who has many years' experience teaching, researching and refining practical applications, this exciting and useful book is a vital source of commercially important information to the aquaculture community. Personnel involved in aquaculture including fish farmers, teachers, students and researchers will find this book invaluable and it should be made available on the shelves of all libraries in government departments, universities and research establishments where aquaculture is practised, studied or taught.
