For aquaculture to grow and address future food security requirements genetic approaches will need to be implemented into production practices. This subject will consider the potential of genetics and how these can be applied to improve desirable traits for aquaculture, such as growth rate, feeding efficiency, disease resistance and market acceptability. Topics covered include: genetic selection, hybridisation, effective breeding numbers, sex reversal, chromosomal manipulation and breeding program design.
