Genetics of Titicaca-lake trout researched

BOLIVIA

Government and university authorities signed an agreement to study the genetic structure of the golden trout that inhabits Titicaca lake.

Signing the multi-sector agreement were representatives of the Greater University of San Andres de La Paz (UMSA), of Bolivia, of the Municipal Government of Achacachi and of the Binational Authority of Titicaca Lake (ALT).

By means of the project, ‘Genetic and phenotypic characterisation of the golden trout of Titicaca lake’ will be used to estimate the diversity of the resource and its differences with populations of rainbow trout.

"Our mission as an academic organisation is to support scientific research in the national and international arena," said Teresa Rescala Nemtala, director of the UMSA. "The golden trout is a genetic variety native to Titicaca lake and its study will allow [us] to provide scientific tools for its sustainable availing for the economic development of the Peruvian and Bolivian lacustrine communities."

Within the framework of the initiative, experts will try to identify the genes implied in the golden colour of the trout, its growth and the efficiency in the nutritional conversion. They will also determine its taxonomy as from anatomical and morphologic characteristics and will define the physical-chemical and bromatologic characteristics, its nutritional contribution and caloric value.

The executive president of the ALT, Julian Barra Catacora, observed that the golden trout is characterised by its fast growth, and its lightly salmon colored and smoothly textured meat. He further emphasised that it has an interesting potential for export in being considered an exotic product.

"Its great acceptability in the local market and the levels of sustainable production could generate a product of high quality export for Peru and Bolivia,” he added.

Meanwhile, the mayor of Achacachi, Bernaba Paucara, announced the launch of a test centre for golden trout breeding to promote the industrial production of canned products.
