This report describes progress in the second year of a 4 year EC -funded research project designed to assess the feasibility of selectively breeding for stress tolerance in farmed rainbow trout and sea bream. This article, which again is confined to the work on trout, describes the execution of crosses made from the high and low stress responding fish and includes some preliminary data on the performance of the Fl progeny in terms of survival, growth, and stress responsiveness.
