Worldwide, fish populations are not doing well, which is why the authorities are trying to support them by "re-stocking" with artificially-bred fish. However, the processes used today are based on laws that are 50 years old. Fish are selected at random, which can lead to serious problems with reproduction and adaptability.
e-Fishency aims to offer specific genetic solutions to improve productivity, reduce mortality and allow natural and aquaculture populations to thrive again, while respecting the natural processes that humans all too often tend to simplify.
