A rationale is provided for undertaking the targeted manipulation of the stress axis in aquacultured fish by selective breeding. The results of a long-term investigation into the consequences of selection for stress responsiveness in rainbow trout are outlined with respect to endocrine characteristics, growth, reproductive performance, behaviour, and cognition. Future and ongoing studies are summarised.
