Aquatic Animal Genetics Research and Development Division

Sub-Organization Administrator 2020-04-21 17:27

The division is responsible for study, research and development on genetic and other related technologies in economically aquatic species (animals and plants) to domesticate them suitable for genetic improvement and then result in good aquacultural traits, both by genotypes and phenotypic performance. On-station and on-farm tests of the genetically improved strains and gene banking of the traditional and developed or new varieties also are concerned. Production and dissemination of the high quality seeds improved by the division are desired. In addition, the division is accredited to monitor and control the process of aquaculture production to reach the international safety standards desirable for consumers and environmental aspect.
