Genetic Back-up



Our methodology is to produce and store indefinitely, cryopreserved (frozen) sperm (milt) as a convenient and safe way to back up aquatic genes without having the practical aspects of keeping the live fish. All samples are individually identified and linked to the male identification number within the broodstock database, providing a complete pedigree history.

Cryogenetics is cooperating with several governmental programs to back up genes from unique or endangered fish species. These can also be unique to certain geographic areas or are present owing to certain environmental factors. We believe that if we are asked to be involved in fish gene preservation or fertility challenges, we have the competence and dexterity to tackle these challenges and provide an assured outcome.
