Title: Genetic Basis of Growth Improvement in Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus Mykiss) Using Plant-Based Diets
Agency: USDA
Contract: 2003-33610-13074
Award Amount: $64,929.00
 

Abstract:

NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Growth in farmed rainbow trout can depend on heritable traits that dictate how fish respond to particular diets. Farmers need more information on identifying growth traits using DNA marker analysis, enabling them to select fish with desirable growth characteristics. Success in this project will define appropriate selection methods for improving growth in rainbow trout using plant based diets, ascertain the effectiveness of microsatellite DNA marker analysis for pedigree assignment in a commercial aquaculture setting, and establish the groundwork for marker-assisted selection programs for these traits in rainbow trout.
