Francis Galton’s criteria feels pretty accurate to mammals and some birds. With context to bass on the other hand, hold no correlation other than maybe hardy. But that’s only in context of the researcher determination of other survivability and ability for consistency.
Now that does not mean Atlantic Salmon and Sea Bass aren’t great aquaculture contenders. There’s been a lot of genetic and social research to support easy rearing along with many other benefits in terms of other fish species, along with large usage of there stocks to begin with they provide a foundation that they can use for marketing.
When it comes to aquaculture it’s a very young field so I see lots of promising potential. But what should a proper criteria look like? Economic nitch, easy species to exploit, the perfect lab fish? Probably try everything so we get a good baseline.
