Explore the science that advances aquaculture breeding programmes

Aquaculture has been the primary source of fish available for human consumption since 2016. To keep up with the increasing demand for healthy protein sources, innovative aquaculture scientists are adopting advanced genomic tools to overcome some of the biggest challenges they face - production efficiency, product quality, profitability and sustainability.

Strategic Development Manager for LGC, Biosearch Technologies, Jason Hein, spoke with three industry experts to learn how modern genomics technologies can support aquaculture breeding goals. Register for our on-demand webinar, Application of advanced genomics tools in aquaculture breeding programmes to learn:

  • how a global seafood company applied tailor-made genomic tools to its commercial Atlantic salmon breeding programme to improve selection accuracy for traits of interest and to screen and evaluate broodstock candidates.
  • why some aquaculture breeders use imputation from low-density SNP panels to high-density genotypes to reduce the cost associated with genomic selection.
  • what it takes to design and implement an on-site genotyping lab to advance an aquaculture breeding programme.
