Improved tilapia strains through broodstock development in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
Increased tilapia production can be attained in several ways. It can be achieved through development of better diets, proper stocking densities, increasing cultural inputs, efficient management practices, etc. but yields cannot be optimized if genetically inferior species are used. The continued use of deteriorated stocks of tilapia (i.e. Tilapia nilotica) is a deterring factor in the expansion of the tilapia industry (PCARRD, 1985).
