Explore advances in modern aquaculture breeding programmes

Webinar support page thumbnail-1


Our changing climate and growing population challenge the world’s food supply, especially in aquaculture, which is more prone to problems associated with climatic variability. Innovative scientists are turning to advanced genomic tools to enhance the production efficiency, sustainability, product quality and profitability of aquaculture. They’re partnering with LGC, Biosearch Technologies to help optimise their workflows for maximum genetic gain using a modern agrigenomic approach.

This webinar demonstrates how aquaculture breeders leverage genomic tools, such as targeted genotyping by sequencing (GBS) and ultra-high-throughput PCR-based genotyping technology, to improve
the accuracy of their genomic selection for enhanced survival in salmon, trout, tilapia and shrimp.


Topics include:

- Development and application of tailor-made genomic tools in a commercial -Atlantic salmon breeding programme.

- Application of KASP™ and SeqSNP targeted GBS panels for low-cost genomic selection in aquaculture.

- Using KASP to breed hybrid shrimp with improved survival.
