Fish Reproduction & Gamete Quality: using aquaculture to preserve biodiversity
TOPIC: ii this seminar we'll be talking about the captive breeding and gamete preservation of several endangered fish, and how we can use the aquaculture to preserve biodiversity
Due to several factors such as overfishing, water pollution or climate change, certain fish species have decreased their population size reaching dramatic low values.
