Biotechnology and Genetics in Fisheries and Acquaculture

Rajendra Kumar (Author)

Biotechnology and Genetics in Fisheries and Acquaculture is of great use to biological sciences students, particularly those studying marine, freshwater and acquatic biology, fish biology, fisheries, acquaculture, population biology and genetics. The book is also extremely useful as a reference to personnel such as fish farmers and fisheries scientists and all those working in fisheries and acquaculture management and research. This comprehensive but easy to use guide covers major areas such as the uses of genetic knowledge to captive breeding programmes and the use of gene transfer in fish to improve quality, and resistance to disease.
