Description

The decline of many individual and wild fish stocks has commanded an increase in aquaculture production to meet the protein demands of a growing population. Alongside selective breeding schemes and expanding facilities, transgenic methods have received increasing attention as a potential factor in meeting these demands. With a focus on developing countries, this third text in the series provides detailed information on environmental biosafety policy and regulation and presents methodologies for assessing ecological risks associated with transgenic fish.

Contents

1: Introduction to environmental risk assessment for transgenic fish 2: Problem formulation and options assessment: science-guided deliberation in risk assessment of transgenic fish 3: Development of transgenic fish: scientific background 4: Gene construct and expression: information relevant for risk assessment and management 5: Approaches to assessing gene flow 6: Assessing ecological effects of transgenic fish prior to entry into nature 7: Introduction to the concepts and methods of uncertainty analysis 8: Risk management: Reducing risk through confinement of transgenic fish 9: Risk management: Post-approval monitoring and remediation 10: Summary and synthesis
