Internationally, Nofimas research within selective breeding has contributed to success in tropical species like tilapia.
Molecular genetics and molecular biology have much to contribute within traditional breeding. They have the potential to increase the level of precision in the breeding programme, reduce inbreeding, enhance our understanding of complex genetics and answer important questions about sustainability and management through the tracking of genes.
Nofima Marin's research in the field of breeding and genetics shall provide fresh knowledge so that breeding programmes can be run more effectively and with a higher level of sustainability. With considerable experience and exceptionally good results to show from breeding of species such as salmon and tilapia, scientists from Nofima Marin are playing a key role on an international basis in breeding and genetics.
