The project targets the management of genetic resources as well as a complex development of aquaculture systems for three autochthonous cultured fish species in Hungary: the wels catfish, common carp and pikeperch). The GOODFISH project is an unprecedented collaborative effort by four major aquaculture education and reseach institutions in Hungary, the Department of Aquaculture of Szent István University, the National Agricultural Research and Innovation Centre, Research Institute for Fisheries and Aquaculture, the Department of Livestock Breeding of the University of Debrecen as well as the Aquaculture Group of the University of Pannonia. The project will also involve contribution by other research groups as subcontractors. The main objectives of GOODFISH include general intensification of the current carp-based pond aquaculture, development and intensification of wels catfish production, development of juvenile rearing of pikeperch, creation of live and frozen gene banks for various populations of the wels catfish and pikeperch as well as veterinary, proteomic and economic studies in common carp farming.
