Minnesota Sea Grant has taken "Genetic Guidelines for Fisheries Management" into new territory! This fully revised second edition accommodates major advances in genetics and capitalizes on the strengths of Internet on-demand publishing.

Authors Anne Kapuscinski and Loren Miller address concerns and opportunities related to genetic conservation and genetic manipulations of fish in this 116-page primer. Genetics can affect fishery stocking programs, captive aquaculture, and decisions about fisheries management. Use this as an interactive Web manual, or download and print it to gain insights into:

-biological principles underlying the genetics of fish
-genetic tools and their application to fish populations
-genetic issues in fisheries management
-status of and issues about genetically engineered fish

A hyperlinked glossary of technical terms makes the manual especially helpful for leaders and managers of fishery and hatchery programs who might not have a strong background in genetics.
