How Can Data Science Improve Fishstock Outcomes?

Formed in 2000 and now an internationally successful company, VSNi provides data analysis software for scientists, researchers and breeders within aquaculture. We want to see the challenges of global fish farming eradicated through the effective application of data, analytics and technology.


Within aquaculture industries, Genstat is widely used for the analysis of variance (ANOVA) when comparing treatment means. Its REML facilities are used for fitting complex linear mixed models to unbalanced, spatial or repeated measures data, and for modelling breeding data.

Genstat offers a suite of procedures for statistical genetics, including genomic prediction (or genomic selection), selection indexes, QTL linkage analysis and GWAS analysis. Fish breeding selection based on genomic information can make significant genetic improvements in programs and production systems.

Genstat’s data visualization options help to identify insights from your statistical analyses and truly get the most from your data.
