The Tokyo University of Marine Science has developed the equivalent of a HapMap for fish, in other words a partial DNA map that focuses on differences within a species. Combining this information with selective breeding, they have already developed flounders resistant to viral lymphocistosis. This approach will continue to be useful because crowded individuals in fish farms can succumb to an array of diseases. Presently they are working on minimizing flatworm infections(Bendenia seriolae) of amberjack fish.
