Benefits from high health and genetically improved shrimp stocks

Swimming through troubled water Proceedings of the special session on shrimp farming, San Diego, California, USA, 1-4 February, 1995 [Browdy, C L; Hopkins, J S Editors]: 60-65
Benefits from high health and genetically improved shrimp stocks
A discussion. Marine shrimp farming is primarily based on the use of wild-caught fry and broodstock, and is constrained by the high incidence of disease. The development of a breeding programme starting with animals of high health status is considered. There is considerable potential for genetic gain because of the level of additive genetic variance for growth in shrimps, and because fecundity is high and the generation interval short.
