Definition of breeding goals for sustainable fish production is considered, with emphasis on non-market (e.g., ethical) as well as market values. The need for long-term biologically, ecologically and sociologically sound breeding goals is emphasiz...

Genomic selection is a selection method where effects of dense genetic markers are first estimated in a test population and later used to predict breeding values of selection candidates. The aim of this paper was to investigate genetic gains, inbr...

In traditional family-based aquaculture breeding, each sire is mated to two dams in order to separate the sire's genetic effect from other family effects. Factorial mating involves more mates per sire and/or dam and result in more but smaller...

Traditionally, selective breeding has been the method of choice for improving broodstock, both in terrestrial and aquatic animal production.

When designing base populations for aquaculture-breeding programs, securing genetic variability for long-term genetic response is necessary. In this paper, we investigated three different strategies using molecular marker information with the aim...

In aquaculture markers have been used mostly for parentage analysis to avoid family rearing or when physical tagging is not feasible. Rates of inbreeding need to be monitored in such schemes to maintain fitness. Markers can be of great use when de...
