Conservation of fish genetic diversity
89) Ensure the conservation of threatened native fish species and populations, while also conserving genetic diversity. Continue the maintenance of brood fish stocks (i.e. living gene bank) and frozen milt, with the aim of maintaining the broadest possible genetic diversity of brood fish stocks producing roe for stocking. Maintain the genetic diversity of economically significant fish stocks through a variety of measures, including regulation of fishing, restoration of water bodies, improvement of water quality and safeguarding the possibilities for fish migration between breeding and growing areas, while maintaining, and if necessary, increasing the numbers of brood fish stocks and the size of the milt bank.
