From the start of ABC in 1998, the culmination of efforts has been the release of broodstock to hatcheries for propagation of seed and eyed larvae. Progress is continuous in a breeding program; therefore, each year ABC expects to release lines that are better than the previous generation. The number of broodstock released climbed from 100 in 2004 to over 28,000 in 2018.
