As a commitment to support the development of sustainable and high volume of marine fish production, USSEC hosted a seminar on selective breeding of marine fish, specifically sea bass barramundi. James Collins from Infini-SEA and Sam Bradenbach from Biomark spoke at the conference.
The seminar received great responses from participants during the Q&A session. Participants understood the importance of selective breeding and efforts to maintain genetic diversity in order to improve fingerlings/offspring quality. It is expected that the seminar will stimulate efforts to produce quality broodstocks and fingerlings. High volume of marine fish production will improve feed production and potential utilization of U.S. soybean meal in the diet.
