This guide, produced by Nofima, Norway, includes a description of the reproductive cycle of sea urchins; the factors that cause variations in the size and quality of the gonad; methods for sampling sea urchin gonads; and a guide to reading the histology slides of sea urchin gonads in order to be able to classify them into the different stages of the reproductive cycle. In order to further assist with this process

An Overview of Marine Ornamental Fish Breeding as a Potential Support to the Aquarium Trade and to the Conservation of Natural Fish Populations
This article presents an overview of the ornamental fish trade regarding the most important species involved and their situation and the harvesting effects on the ecosystem. In addition it discusses updated information on breeding protocols for some high-value marine fish species.
Aquaculture genomics, genetics and breeding in the United States: current status, challenges, and priorities for future research
This paper provides a general review of the current status, challenges and future research needs of aquaculture genomics, genetics, and breeding, with a focus on major aquaculture species in the United States: catfish, rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon, tilapia, striped bass, oysters, and shrimp.Abdelrahman, H., ElHady, M., Alcivar-Warren, A. et al. Aquaculture genomics, genetics and breeding in the United States: current status, challenges, and priorities for future research. BMC Genomics 18, 191 (2017).
CCGP is aiming to develop genome sequences, maps and genetic tools for comprehensive understanding of common carp genome, boosting genome-assistant breeding and selection on domesticated common carp worldwide.
Ensembl is a genome browser for vertebrate genomes that supports research in comparative genomics, evolution, sequence variation and transcriptional regulation. Ensembl annotate genes, computes multiple alignments, predicts regulatory function and collects disease data. Ensembl tools include BLAST, BLAT, BioMart and the Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) for all supported species.

ENACAThis ENACA guide focuses on improving management practices for captive breeding and culture of semah and empurau (Tor tambroides and T. douronensis). The guide encompass broodstock management, artificial propagation and related husbandry activities.
This manual is a practical guide to commercial scale seed production of blacklip abalone (Haliotis rubra) in NSW, Australia with specialized instruction on topics rearing and inducing spawning. The techniques described are geared to efficient and intensive production of abalone spat using small areas of land.
The National Aquaculture Genome Project is a part of the U.S. National Animal Genome Research Project. This site is designed to enhance collaboration, cooperation, communication, and coordination among aquaculture genome research community members.
The Grass Carp Genome Database (GCGD) is a curated web platform for centralized access to information on grass carp genome and genetics.
