Title: Sterilisation technologies for penaeid prawns
Id: 2141
Acronym: Food Futures Flagship 2B3 - Sterilisation technologies penaeid prawns
Investigator(s): Peter Crocos
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Dutton Park [details]

Description: The application of modern genetic technology to improve aquaculture production is a key focus for CMR aquaculture and our involvement within the Food Futures Flagship. prawns are a key species for ISA and Flagship investment (Stream 2B Engineering Aquaculture Breeds Project 2B1 & 2B3). Continuing advances in genetic improvement, together with the high health status of Australia's farmed crustaceans, will make seed-stock an increasingly attractive and valuable Australian export commodity. Currently there are no mechanisms for protecting these genetic resources. This project seeks to address this issue through the development of safe, cost-effective techniques for sterilising broodstock and seed-stock.
Years: 2004 to 2005
