Eknath, A.E. (1991) Simple broodstock management to control indirect selection and inbreeding: Indian carp example. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 14(2), pp. 13-14.
Following a survey of the important traits of Indian carp broodstock at some southern Indian hatcheries, it was found that the broodstock selection was size selective, exerting strong, negative selection of prematuration growth rate and positive selection on age at first maturation. This meant that the hatchery bred inadvertently slower growing and later maturing individuals. Details are given of approaches to avoid such negative selection and minimize inbreeding.
