Some grow, for example, faster than others and some are more resistant to disease. We are working to control the genetic variations that we find in the fishes. By selecting the parent animals that have the desired properties, one can systematically control the population...

Research and Development (R&D) in breeding and genetics generally takes quite some time before results are known. This has naturally to do with the rather long time to produce subsequent generations of Atlantic salmon (3-4 years). After selecting a group of broodfish we have to gather the findings for the offspring to see the results of...
