Boosting European aquaculture by advancing selective breeding to the next levels

In the spotlight:
Dr. Wendy Rauw, Researcher at INIA, Spain
'Today, only a small part of the global aquaculture production is based on genetically improved stocks. In our research we expect to develop a method to record between-family variation in feed efficiency in fish that can be used to genetically improve feed efficiency in fish species. This may improve both the economic efficiency of production and sustainability of aquaculture.'
