As the first commercially valuable fish species, tora-fugu(Takifugu rubripes) genome was sequenced. We tried to utilize this geneme information for improved breeding of this species . We fond specific loci responsible for each phenotypes，such as body size, scale development, resistance against a specific parasite, and behavioral patterns, using inter-species hybridization among Takifugu species. In addition, we found sex determination gene, and developed sex control system of this species, in which male is more valuable.
