Genetic Key to Salt-Tolerance Discovered in Tilapia Fish

UC Davis Faculty member and professor, Dietmar Kueltz and his team of collaborators have published research regarding ave now identified short DNA segments in tilapia that influence the expression of the genes that regulate the fish’s internal body chemistry in response to salinity stress. This discovery may help in the species conservation efforts, and help to identify what other fish species might share same trait.
