Good Practices in Breeding and Genetics for the growth of Aquaculture Sector in Bangladesh

“Good Practices and Innovation in Breeding & Genetics of Aquaculture Species” focuses on the dynamic realm of aquaculture with a focus on enhancing breeding and genetic methodologies. Participants will explore the latest advancements and best practices in the field, aiming to optimize breeding programs and genetic selection to meet the growing demands of sustainable aquaculture. Through a blend of theoretical insights and practical case studies, the seminar underscores the significance of innovation in driving genetic improvement, disease resistance, and overall productivity within aquaculture systems. By fostering interdisciplinary collaborations and embracing cutting-edge technologies, the session will highlight the pivotal role of genetic innovation in shaping the future of aquaculture, ensuring its resilience and viability amidst evolving environmental and market challenges. Furthermore, the session will delve into the importance of SPF Monodon, a specific strain of black tiger shrimp bred in controlled environments, showcasing its role in disease prevention and sustainable aquaculture practices.

Session Objectives:

  • Illustrating Successful Case Studies: Present successful case studies highlighting the application of
    cutting-edge genetic techniques in aquaculture breeding. These case studies will illustrate real-world
    examples of how genomic selection, marker-assisted breeding, and advanced reproductive
    technologies have been effectively employed to enhance production efficiency, genetic resilience,
    and sustainability within the aquaculture industry.
  • Enhance Genetic Resilience: Understand the importance of genetic diversity and its role in
    bolstering the resilience of aquaculture species to environmental stressors, diseases, and changing
    climatic conditions.
  • Address Ethical and Environmental Concerns: Explore ethical concerns in aquaculture genetic
    manipulation and breeding, while mitigating environmental impacts and promoting responsible
    stewardship of genetic resources.
