Study compares effects of vegetable-based and commercial pellet-based diets on the nutrient assimilation and gastrointestinal microbiota of GIFT tilapia.
El cultivo de tilapia en Bangladesh se ha desarrollado considerablemente desde 1999, basada en la cepa de Tilapia Cultivada Genéticamente Mejorada (GIFT) de la tilapia del Nilo (Oreochromis niloticus) introducida de Malasia y en el importante trabajo de investigación del
Tilapia aquaculture in Bangladesh has developed significantly since 1999, based on the Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) strain of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) introduced from Malaysia and on the significant genetic improvement research work by the Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute
With interest in culturing tilapia in marine habitats increasing, producers must obtain tilapia capable of growing well in seawater. A study found that both pure-bred and hybrid tilapia performed better in freshwater than in water with high salinity.
The wide distribution and ongoing improvement of GIFT tilapia in Sri Lanka is raising living standards and employment for women in rural areas.
China’s expansive tilapia culture industry is based on exotic species introduced continuously since 1956. Technical advances for improving the limited germplasm are expected to aid the industry.
Although the application of selective breeding and genetics can yield dramatic results, the use of genetically improved stock varies widely among aquaculture sectors. Virtually all Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout producers use improved stock, while use of genetically improved tilapia
