Research Issues/Needs
An important area that requires
further research could be
grouped into five:
Breeding and genetic improvement
Health management (effectively
combat emerging diseases)
Feed development (quality, safe
feeds and efficient)
Environmental management
Holding systems development

Genetic Genetic >2 generations Captive bred Wild caught Wild caught
Improvement Management. Captive bred broodstock broodstock seed
Broodstock Improvement
Research is focus on production of
good quality of seeds

Where genetically clean (SPF),

Strong or Healthy
Fast growing and resistant to
diseases (SPR)

Linkage gene for marker assist selection

Selection (qualitative & quantitative phenotype selection)
Hypophysation (induced breeding by injecting fish with substances derived
from the pituitary gland for the purpose of inducing reproduction (such as
ovulation) when conditions are not favorable for successful natural spawning in

Hormonal stimulation (induced breeding by artificial hormonal)

Implantation hormonal (artificial hormonal using implant technique)
Induced spawning (stimulate spawning using physic, biology and chemist

Gynogenesis (development in which the embryo contains only maternal

chromosomes due to activation of an egg by a sperm that degenerates without
fusing with the egg nucleus)

Sex manipulation (changing male or female sex to get determined fish)

Culling (shape, color) BREED TRUE
(1) Autosomal Gene
gen action (contained in body chromosome / autosome & gonosome),
determined by 1 genotype homozygote / several genotype homozygote /
genotype heterozygote

(2) Complete Dominant Gene Action

0.9 0.1 0.81 0.18 0.01 10
How many generation of an albino catfishes can be reduced so that populations
of fish to black pigmented become a breed true ?
Formulation N = 1/qn - 1/qo
N = number of generation; qn = expected for frequency allele; qo = seek out
Example :
Frequency for albino fish are 9%, then it want to reduce until 0.01% (assuming
breed true is 99.9% population). How generation selection needs to be done ?
Answer :
qo = f (albino) = 0.09 = 0.3
qn = f (expected for frequency albino allele) = 0.0001 = 0.01
So the number needed to reduce f ( a ) of 0.3 be 0.01 is
N = 1/0.01 - 1/0.3 = 96.67 97 generation

Progeny testing
Is it possible to elliminate recessive allele, designating dominant allele ,
producing population to breed true ?
Whether individual fish homozygot dominant maintained / heterozygot dominant
to be disposed of ?

(B) Quantitative Phenotype Selection

Culling (length, weight, % of flesh, viability, lipid and protein contain,
fecundity, etc) BREED TRUE
(B.1) No Selection Program / Unintentional Program breeding program &
free selection / unintentionally
Prerequisite for Unintentional Program
(to prevent decreasing of fish quality)
(1) Fecundate all the fish on the start of the breeding season
(2) Fecundate all the fish on all sizes
(3) Fecundate all the fish on the high numbers
(4) Do not dispose the fish that slow-growing / sexual product can be described as poor
level domesticated variety of wild fish rearing fish with proportional

(B.2) Directional Selection

Used to increase its parameters with an average productivity
population as fenotype desirable, such as an average weight, total length,
lower conversion of food, the average of lipid percentage
cut off based on value of Standard Deviation (SD) & Coefficient of
Variation [(SD/mean)100]
What genetic issues should we
be taking into account?
Maintaining and improving culture performance
Strain selection (up to 60% difference best-worst)

Harvesting genetic variation at the beginning of

Managing genetic variation during and after domestication
Ultimately exploiting genetic variation through selective
breeding and other genetics based technologies
Managing environmental impact (genetic

Eyestalk ablation
the removal of one (unilateral) or both (bilateral) eyestalks from a crustacean. It is routinely
practiced on female shrimps (or prawns) in almost every marine shrimp maturation or reproduction
facility in the world, both research and commercial. The aim of ablation under these circumstances
is to stimulate the female shrimp to develop mature ovaries and spawn

A substance used to protect biological tissue from freezing damage (i.e. that due to ice formation).
Insects, fish and amphibians create cryoprotectants (antifreeze compounds and antifreeze proteins)
in their bodies to minimize freezing damage during cold winter periods. Cryoprotectants are also
used to preserve living materials in the study of biology and to preserve food products.

To identifying opportunities, is useful to see six general
development trends of aquaculture in Indonesia:
1. Continuing in/ex-tensification of aquaculture production
2. Continuing diversification of species use
3. Continuing diversification of production system and practices
4. Increasing influence of markets, trade and consumers
5. Enhancing regulation and improving governance
6. Increasing attention on better management practices

In support of the above trends four areas of opportunities

have been identified:
a. Application of innovative capacity enhancement program
b. Search for new technologies
c. Development of new aquatic products, markets and integration into eco-
tourism sector
d. Development of new financial product
