The compendium Genetic Impact of Aquaculture Activities on Native Populations is the end product of Genimpact, presenting the outputs of four workshops:

  • Genetics of domestication, breeding and enhancement of performance of fish and shellfish. Viterbo, Italy, 12 -17 June 2006
  • Monitoring tools for evaluation of genetic impact of aquaculture activities on wild populations. Tenerife, Spain, 19 - 21 October 2006
  • The use of modelling to assess the risk of genetic impacts on wild populations from escapes of cultured fish. Pitlochry, Scotland, UK, 15 - 17 February 2007
  • Development of management options to reduce genetic impacts of aquaculture activities. Thessaloniki, Greece, 19 - 22 April 2007.

Each section is composed of a series of chapters, and while the report represents an integrated whole, each chapter can stand alone as an independent document with regards to some particular subtopic. Some additional linking paragraphs are added at the beginning of each section to insure that the chapters are appropriately put in context.
