Cage culture of Oreochromis aureus and Oreochromis niloticus hybrids in Laguna Lake, Philippines.
MetadataShow full item record
A reciprocal cross of male Oreochromis aureus and female Oreochromis niloticus were made to produce the hybrids stocked in cages in Laguna Lake, Philippines with and without feeding. The growth rates of the hybrids from the cross of female O. aureus and male O. niloticus were better than the other hybrids. From the first to the sixth culture months. The hybrids in terms of bulk weight per cage and percentage survival did not differ significantly. However, the average weight per fish was higher in the hybrids of O. aureus (female) x O. niloticus (male) than that of that of the original cross. The stocking density of 40/m3, supplemental feeding did not influence growth compared to the control.
