The topic deals with the reproductive biology and applied genetics of fish and other aquacultured species such as molluscs and crustaceans. Students will gain an understanding of the complex interplay of environmental, physiological and genetic factors that influence reproductive development in a variety of aquacultured species. This topic delivers the knowledge of the genetic characterisation of wild and domesticated fish stocks and the applications of population genetics techniques. The topic will also cover the techniques and technologies used by aquaculturists to manage and manipulate broodstock, gametes, embryonic and larval stages to maximise productivity.
