Abstract

Transgenic technologies have been developed in a wide variety of organisms, providing useful model systems for genetic studies and new genetic variation for practical that would otherwise be unavailable. The development of genetically modified plants for agricultural purposes is well under way, and the production of transgenic animals including fish for aquacultural purposes is also being pursued. Transgenesis offers great promise in aquaculture by providing new phenotypes and improving the efficiency of production Some commercially important processes that are amenable to manipulation in transgenic fish 
aquaculture are listed in Table 1.
