Selective breeding for disease resistance has hadvaried success in agricultural animals. In aquaculture, selection for disease resistance is ongoing in salmonids, carp, Japanese flounder, and catfish as well as in other fish and shellfish (Haskin and Ford 1979; Gjedrem 2000; Vandeputte 2003; Fuji et al. 2006). Improving disease resistance through selective breeding can be problematic because disease resistance is typically a complex trait and selection based solely on phenotypic response to… CONTINUE READING
