Bibliographic description: Nikandrov V.Y., Pavlisov A.A., Shindavina N.I., Lukin A.A., Golod V.M., Lipatova M.I. Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus L.) a perspective aquaculture object for the North of Russia. Arctic: ecology and economy, 2018, no. 3(31), pp. 137-143. DOI: 10.25283/2223-4594-2018-3-137-143.

Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus L.) is a promising aquaculture object in the Russian Arctic due to its evolutionary adaptation to polar conditions. Potentially, this species can become the basis of commercial fish farming in the North. The breeding of young fish and formation of broodstocks in hatcheries using genetic principles of reproduction management will allow receiving delicacy products, and will serve as a basis for restoring the number of natural populations. The arctic char forms different ecotypes (anadromous, lake-river, lake, river and stream forms) that provides a successful search of promising populations in natural reservoirs and hybridization to achieve the effect of heterosis and the creation of fast-growing breeds. So, Arctic char is a unique object for selection work.
