FREEZEBASS Report Summary

Project ID: Q5CT-2002-71209
Funded under: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Country: France

A sperm bank gathering the whole sea bass genetic variability

This bank is the first bank of reference gathering the present wild genetic resources for the sea bass. It will allow the project partners:
- to increase the genetic variability of farmed populations by adequate mixing of genes,
- to avoid all problem related to the displacement of alive wild broodstock,
- to realize sophisticated and large crossing scheme necessary to breeding programs,
- to utilize seasonal desynchronized males,
- to protect the genetic progress of their breeding programs.
