By Didier Montet, R.C. Ray

Aquaculture is presently one of many quickest turning out to be creation sectors on the earth. It now bills for almost part (45%) of the world�s nutrition fish (which refers to creation of aquatic animals: fish, crustaceans, molluscs, amphibians) and this raise is predicted to arrive 50% in 2015. Genetic engineering and biotechnology have contributed tremendously to this box. the main prevalent equipment in fish biotechnology are chromosome manipulation and hormone therapy which might be used to provide triploid, tetraploid, haploid, gynogenetic and androgenetic fish.
