Case study of a large-scale breeding programme. Norwegian salmonid programme for production of food fish



Selection, hybridization, and genetic engineering in Aquaculture Volume 2 Proceedings of a world symposium sponsored and supported by European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission of FAO and International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, Bordeaux, June 27-30, 1986: 379-382



In Norway production of rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in tons was 7500 and 65 000 resp. in 1988, 7000 and 50 000 in 1987, and 2691 and 4142 in 1979. A breeding programme for the improvement of growth rate, sexual maturity, food conversion, meat quality and disease resistance was devised in 1985. Initial selection will be for faster growth and a more suitable age at sexual maturity.
