Among the wealth of existing literature on gene transfer in animals and plants in general, this volume stands out as the first one exclusively devoted to gene transfer in aquatic organisms, including both finfish and shellfish. It offers a unique, specialized outlook on the latest biotechnological applications of this research and provides copious discussion of the future possibilities using gene transfer. Following the introduction, the book is organized into three main sections: transgenic model systems, the impact of new technologies on modern aquaculture and the application of gene transfer in aquatic organisms.
