Scientists here produce sea bass that’s healthier, easier to breed

A selective breeding programme developed by scientists from the Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory at NUS and the Singapore Food Agency has successfully produced a genetically superior Asian sea bass broodstock that not only tastes better and is healthier for consumers, but is also easier for farmers to rear. The research for the selective breeding programme spanned 15 years and was commercialised in 2018.
