Abstract

 

Meat quality is one of the most important economic traits in farm animals. Meat quality trait has a multifactorial background and is controlled by an unknown number of quantitative trait loci (QTL). Meat quality is an important trait for genetic selection and breeding. This valuable background knowledge would lead to investigate QTLs and identifying genes of most important traits of aquaculture species in further. Thus, that genomic information could be applied in MAS breeding programs to fulfill the meat and protein demand of market through aquatic species and prevent from the huge loss in aquaculture industry. The objective of this review is to describe meat quality (QTLs), identified in animals. Furthermore, this knowledge will lead the researchers to investigate the QTLs associated with meat quality traits are needed a great attention for genetic development of Aquaculture species.

 

Keywords: Meat quality traits, Farm animals, Aquaculture species.
