Effect of shrimp biomass and feeding on the anti-Vibrio harveyi activity of Tilapia sp. in a simulated shrimp–tilapia polyculture system The efficiency of Tilapia hornorum to control luminous bacteria in a simulated shrimp farm environment has been reported. However, the effects of different factors such as feed input and the shrimp biomass were not taken into consideration. This study investigated the effect of feeding and increased shrimp biomass on the efficiency of tilapia to inhibit the growth of luminous bacteria. Results showed that feeding enhances the antibacterial activity or improves the efficiency of tilapia to inhibit the growth of luminous bacteria. However, the efficiency of tilapia at a biomass of 500 g/m3 is reduced if the shrimp biomass is greater than 80 g/m3. This explains the discrepancies in the results obtained in the use of tilapia to control luminous bacterial disease in shrimp ponds. The effect of starvation on the bacterial load of tilapia, grouper and milkfish feces and the amount of feces in the intestine was also investigated. Results showed that total bacterial and presumptive Vibrio count of fish feces decreased after 1 week of starvation except for the presumptive Vibrio count of grouper. The amount of feces in the intestine also decreased as starvation progressed. Moreover, bacteria isolated from the three species have antibacterial activity against the luminous bacteria Vibrio harveyi.

The country was the top producer of the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and red seaweed, Eucheuma sp., in the world during the period. Intensification of cage and pond culture of tilapia in freshwater with artificial feeding was prevalent. The National Tilapia Production Program was launched in 1990 and is being implemented in 26 sites of 12 regions in the country. Culture of sex-inversed tilapias (O. niloticus and O. niloticus x O. mossambicus hybrids) in freshwater cages, brackishwater ponds, and sea cages was pilot-tested for the first time. For seaweeds, studies were made on the culture of other economically-important species such as Gracilaria sp. and Porphyra sp. A trial on the integrated searanching of abalones (Haliotis sp.) and giant clams (Tridacna sp.) with Euchema was also conducted.
Conference paperRD Guerrero III, LA Guerrero & RG Cornejo - In CL Marte, GF Quinitio & AC Emata (Eds.), Proceedings of the Seminar-Workshop on Breeding and Seed Production of Cultured Finfishes in the Philippines, Tigbauan, Iloilo, Philippines, 4-5 May 1993, 1996 - SEAFDEC Aquaculture DepartmentTilapias are important foodfishes in the Philippines second only to milkfish. While farming of tilapias in freshwater ponds and cages is already established, there is a need for wider application of the available technologies for brackishwater culture. This paper presents the tilapia species used for brackishwater farming and the commercial methods applied for their hatchery/nursery rearing.
