Commercial launch of marker-assisted genetically improved rainbow trout eggs

Marker Assisted Selection

Rainbow trout is produced under highly diverse environmental conditions, and harvested in many different sizes with a wide array of tissue pigment levels, ranging from white-fleshed pan-size trout produced in 6-10 oC fresh water to large 4 kg-plus steelhead trout in 18-20oC seawater!

Such variation in conditions and production cycle, obviously calls for different genetics, and no single breeding line would serve all.

AquaSearch is now addressing the consequence of this and expanding its already comprehensive product program with the option to have individual batches of eggs custom produced by marker-assisted selection and improved genetics-related specific disease resistance, age of maturation and more.
