A set of selection measures for increasing reproduction efficiency in Hirudo medicinalis has been developed. The optimal values of reproductive traits corresponding to the highest progeny number were determined and recommended. The probability of correlated selection response in traits “number of juveniles in a cocoon” and “weight of juveniles” was estimated. Based on earlier results on phenotypic variation and heritability of reproductive traits in medicinal leech, efficiency of different selection modes was predicted.
