Heritability of Growth Traits for Small Abalone Haliotis Diversicolor Estimated from Sib Matings (Report) Journal of Shellfish Research read online review & book description:

ABSTRACT Twelve half-sib groups and 36 full-sib groups of small abalone Haliotis diversicolor were obtained by the unbalanced nest design using artificial fertilization of 3 females by each male. Heritabilities of growth-related traits were estimated from postlarva to market size at days 10, 40, 120, 220, 320, and 420. The estimated heritabilities based on sire components for shell length and shell width were 0.15-0.37 and 0.18-0.42, respectively. Heritability estimate for shell length and shell width based on dam component were larger than those based on sire component. The results in the current study indicate that genetic improvement through selective breeding conducted on small abalone might be available and would be an efficient method to obtain a positive response to selection. KEY WORDS: abalone, Haliotis diversicolor, heritability, growth, half-sib
