SCI501 Genetic and Reproductive Technologies


This course will cover state of the art methods in genetics and reproduction biology, concerning the securing and maintenance of genetic diversity in captive lines and the preservation and captive breeding of rare and endangered aquatic species. Breeding and reproduction are the pre-requisites to start a genetic program for a new species. Monosex technologies develop all female or all male lines for aquaculture and are useful where one sex is preferred over the other or to stop early breeding that would otherwise occur in mixed male and female stocks.
