• Genome‐wide association study reveals genes associated with the absence of intermuscular bones in tambaqui

    18 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    The presence of intermuscular bones in fisheries products limits the consumption and commercialization potential of many fish species, including tambaqui. These bones have caused medical emergencies and are an undesirable characteristic for fish farming because their removal is labor‐intensive during fish processing. Despite the difficulty in identifying genes related to the lack of intermuscular bone in diverse species of fish, the discovery of individuals lacking intermuscular bones in a Neotropical freshwater characiform fish has provided a unique opportunity to delve into the...
