About this book

Recent years have witnessed a surge of interest in the application of the principles of genetics to conservation and the sustainable management of fish resources. The realization of the genetic basis of many fisheries management problems is growing, at a time when the world catch from fisheries is approaching the maximum sustainable level and all levels of biodiversity are threatened. Based on scientific information on tropical and temperate ecosystems and their fish resources, this work aims to provide a detailed account of the genetic profiles of different fish populations, molecular genetic marking techniques, factors affecting genetic diversity, and genetic manipulation techniques. The book sets out to apply conservation and biotechnology to protect natural fish populations and wild fish gene pools, while addressing the issues concerning biosafety and sustainable management.


Introduction; Biological units in fishery management; Marine genetic resources and sustainable fisheries; Framework for conservation and management of genetic resources of marine fish; Freshwater fish genetic resources and conservation approaches; Genome manipulation in fishery management; Gene transfer in fisheries; Genetic factors in production; Introgressive hybridization of introduced peled with the native whitefish; Microsatellite DNA markers for monitoring genetic change in hatchery stock for release and net-cage culture of red sea bream.
