Fate Of Fish Stocks In The Baltic Sea Determined By Salt Stratification
2014-02-19 15:39:07

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel Why management strategies must take into account regional conditions In the Baltic Sea, two cod stocks evolve independently. Also the juveniles of two economically important flatfish species, flounder and plaice, live there within limited space. This is possible due to the irregular distribution of water masses of different salinity in this inland sea. Scientists of GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Institute of...

Farmers Breed Better Fish Using Genetic Chip
2014-02-14 13:07:00

University of Edinburgh Atlantic salmon production could be boosted by a new technology that will help select the best fish for breeding. The development will enable salmon breeders to improve the quality of their stock and its resistance to disease. A chip loaded with hundreds of thousands of pieces of DNA – each holding a fragment of the salmon's genetic code – will allow breeders to detect fish with the best genes. It does so by detecting variations in the genetic code of...
