Result description

Data demonstrating how temperature affects growth rate (trait differences) in Atlantic salmon of different genetic stocks - wild, farmed and introgressed salmon. This work was performed under the AquaTrace project, aiming to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture.

Result description

The AquaTrace project, aiming to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, have secured biological material for analysis from European seabass, gilt-head (sea) bream and turbot that covers the full range of genetic diversity present in wild and farmed populations in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.

Result description

The AquaTrace project, aiming to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, have developed genetic profiles for salmon and trout families of different genetic backgrounds (including extracted DNA and RNA) to allow for comparisons between wild, farmed and wild crossed with farmed fish (that exhibit different traits and performance).

Result description

The AquaTrace project, aimed to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, have produced extensive genomic resources of two commercial fish species: seabass and seabream. This work has mapped the structure of the genetic material of European seabass and gilt-head (sea) bream. The map is fully searchable and can be used to retrieve genomic information for multiple use.

Result description

Developed under the AquaTrace project, aimed to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, on-line reports have been made availabel proving profiles of European seabass, gilt-head (sea) bream, turbot, Atlantic salmon and brown trout. The information in these reports compiles existing biological information about each species, such as life-history traits, distribution, biology and production; genetic and genomic characteristics; and, information about ecological, conservation, fisheries and aquaculture specific issues relating to them.

Result description

The AquaTrace project, aiming to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, have developed a report on the status of breeding programs of 14 farmed species across 14 countries. This report includes a list of selected traits, reproductive technics, selection startegies and molecular tools employed.

Result description

The AquaTrace project, aiming to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, have outlined the validated procedures and software utilised for the analysis of raw high-throughput sequence data (the Bioinformatic pipeline for ddRAD analysis). This is the methodology required for distinguishing genetic variation between fish species' families and populations.

Result description

The AquaTrace project, aimed to develop tools for tracing and evaluating the genetic impact of fish from aquaculture, have identified genetic variation within the genome of turbot, European seabass and gilt-head (sea) bream. This allows different families and/or populations within each species to be distinguised between (Single nucleotide polymorphisms using Double Digest RAD sequencing).
