Potential of genetics for aquaculture development in Africa
Aquaculture in Africa is fairly insignificant by world standards and accounts for a mere 0.4 per cent of global aquaculture production. The application of genetics can play an important role in efforts to increase aquaculture production in Africa through methods such as selective breeding, hybridization, chromosome manipulation and use of YY ôsupermalesö. Other issues that need to be addressed are limited genetic research facilities, funding, human capacity and suitable species for aquaculture.
