  • Selection of Desirable Species for Aquaculture
    • Rapid growth rate e.g. grass carp, mussels
    • Easily controlled life cycles e.g. tilapia
    • Tolerance of fluctuating environmental conditions
    • Low down the food chain - cheaper to feed - herbivores and omnivores
    • Efficient food conversion
    • Low susceptibility to disease - less use of antibiotics
    • Tolerance to overcrowding
    • Available brood stock
    • Rapid breeding rate
