Division of Fish Genetics and Biotechnology ( FGB)


  1. To develop genetically improved varieties of fish through selective breeding program.
  2. To enhance growth rate in coldwater fish through integration of recent biotechnological techniques
  3. To understand genetic variation among commercial important species with respect to growth performance traits and connect for captive breeding of fish.
  4. To develop molecular identification markers for hill/ coldwater fishes
  5. Conservation of hill/ coldwater fishes using different biotechnological techniques
  6. To undertake research in priority areas of computational biology and fisheries bioinformatics.
