About this book

The decline of many individual and wild fish stocks commanded an increase in aquaculture production to meet the protein demands of a growing population. Transgenic methods received attention as a potential factor in meeting these demands. This book presents methodologies for assessing ecological risks associated with transgenic fish.


1: Introduction to environmental risk assessment for transgenic fish; 2: Problem formulation and options assessment: science-guided deliberation in risk assessment of transgenic fish; 3: Development of transgenic fish: scientific background; 4: Gene construct and expression: information relevant for risk assessment and management; 5: Approaches to assessing gene flow; 6: Assessing ecological effects of transgenic fish prior to entry into nature; 7: Introduction to the concepts and methods of uncertainty analysis; 8: Risk management: Reducing risk through confinement of transgenic fish; 9: Risk management: Post-approval monitoring and remediation; 10: Summary and synthesis.
