Biotech solutions from farm to fork
Fast and precise identification of disease-causing viruses, bacteria and parasites using PCR analyses, is a valuable tool in health surveillance of fish throughout the whole production phase in aquaculture.
Genotyping in the field of genomics is an analysis that identifies the DNA information of an individual. By genotyping specific gene variants of the brood fish and linking these to physical characteristics, this is used to breed offspring with favorable traits.
Any fish can be traced back to the owner using its unique DNA. In aquaculture, it is possible to trace which parents and egg delivery it originated from and thus find back to the fish farms it grew up in.
