GENETIC MANAGEMENT OF CULTURED STOCKS

  • Genetic management of cultured mussel stocks (genetic background; directed crossings; seed management). 
  • Identification of candidate genes of productive interest (growth-related genes; adaptive responses; gene expression profiles).

GENETIC MANAGEMENT OF FISHERIES

  • Landscape genetics (population structure; genetic status of populations; connectivity patterns).
  • Allocation studies (authenticity and geographic origin of canned mussels; exotic restocking impact on local populations; impact of intensive culturing on natural populations).
