AquaAmérica maintains its own genetic improvement program active since 2013, a rigorous process of selections resulting in animals (grandparents) which will produce broodstock at each cycle, and at the same time (annually), animals are selected to produce the next generation in nucleus selection. The mating for broodstock production, consider inbreeding control methods, avoiding the mating of kindred animals until the third generation.
All the animals of the nucleus selection are identified individually with microchips allowing the individual evaluation and posterior selection. The main adopted selection criteria in the company is the gain of weight.
All the AquaAmérica broodstock used in reproduction in the company possesses identification microchip. This practice allows the tracking and identification of each animal, monitoring its productivity in the stock.
