Genetic Breeding and Molecular Marker-Assisted Selective Breeding of Largemouth Bass provides evidenced-based research that summarizes the theory and practice of genetic breeding. It provides a theoretical basis and technical support for the genetic improvement of largemouth bass varieties, but is also a good reference on the genetic breeding of other farmed fish. As knowledge of systematic studies, including germplasm resources, biology, quantitative genetics, selection breeding, variety hybridization and molecular marker assisted breeding is needed to increase growth performance, this book provides comprehensive information that is suitable for aquatic genetic breeding researchers and undergraduate and graduate students in aquatic genetics and breeding.
- Presents research on the collection, conservation and evaluation of domestic and abroad germplasm resources, basic biology and genetics, and different types of breeding
- Provides both theory and practical application to enhance the growth and development of new species of fish
- Includes methods to analyze data results and better predict research outcomes

Has hosted a national science and technology support projects, the national 863 high-tech project, the foundation of the national science and technology projects, the ministry of agriculture "948" project, the natural science foundation of Guangdong province and Guangdong province science and technology plan projects and so on more than 20 scientific research projects. The new varieties "Youlu No.1 largemouth bass which grows by 20% was approved by National Certification Committee for Aquatic Varieties, and as a major breeding variety widely used in China. In 2015, the annual production of Youlu No. 1 largemouth bass reached 180,000 tons.
Over the past 30 years, more than 10 technical awards were received from government of Guangdong Province, the Ministry of Agriculture of China and Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences. More than 250 research papers have been published by leading authors in journals.
