Aquaculture Genetics and Reproduction


Much of the application of genetics and reproduction takes place in the management of stocks of aquatic organisms in hatcheries, where appropriate management has a major effect on seed quality. This half-module covers the traditional and molecular scientific principles of genetics and reproduction, and the ways in which these are applied to manage aquaculture stocks and seed quality in hatcheries. Basic concepts of hatchery management are demonstrated and practised in the Institute's tropical aquarium and external farm facilities.

This module is taken by Aquaculture BSc students only.
