Here is a straightforward primer on the principles and practices of genetics as they relate to fish farming. Hatchery managers, fish farmers, and fish biologists will gain practical insights into the ways fish genetics can be used to better manage fish populations and dramatically improve their productivity. The book first reviews basic genetic principles and the genetics of sex determination. It then focuses on the genetics of qualitative traits, such as body colour, explaining the different types of inheritance, showing how to determine gene frequencies, and profiling selection programs that produce true breeding populations. Also considered are quantitative issues, including weight, selection, hybridization, inbreeding, genetic-environmental interactions, and environmental variance. Readers will also learn the fundamentals of broodstock management, and find detailed coverage of genetic engineering, chromosomal manipulation, and electrophoresis. This book should be of interest to fish farmers; hatchery managers; fish biologists.

Introduction. Review of basic genetics. Genetics of qualitative phenotypes. Biotechnology. Genetics of broodstock management. Appendixes. Glossary. References. Index.
