SalmoBreed - Model SB QTL IPN - Molecular Genetic Analysis
From SalmoBreed QTL
Male fish with positive QTL genotypes are used as sires. Selection of broodstock is based on IPN challenge tests of families in nucleus. This information is combined with the results of molecular genetic analysis (QTL) of broodstock candidates to provide the best possible breeding results. Dams (mothers) come from SalmoBreed broodstock lines. These lines are also selected for resistance to IPN virus.
- Broodstock selected for QTL, give offspring with significant resistance to IPN virus.
- Expanded Delivery Window: Early eggs from week 45, Late eggs – including deliveries – in July
