A study tested the effects of a commercial product that includes three organic acids incorporated into a commercial feed for Nile tilapia fingerlings.
Experiments were conducted to evaluate the potential survival and growth benefits of three multi-strain probiotics in three different stages of juvenile rohu (hatchling to advanced fry). Results showed beneficial effects of the probiotics treatments for the hatchling and fry stages,
The integration of marine and brackish water aquaculture with plants can help lead to alternative food production on coastlines, in arid lands and in urban/periurban areas. Some 50 salt-tolerant plants could be cultivated for grains or biodiesel applications.
With a hatchery system that involves collection of eggs and larvae, and hormonal sex reversal, it is possible to produce billions of monosex tilapia (all-male) fry to satisfy demand and accelerate aquaculture development.
Thailand’s tilapia industry has been able to grow into a thriving sector thanks to technological advances and knowledge sharing.
The tilapia production boom results from technology that combines artificial egg incubation and monosex fry production using hormonal sex reversal.
Night lighting has a growth-promoting effect on temperate fish, as they exhibit increased foraging. Lights also attract insects, an additional source of protein.
Nutrient levels in Nile tilapia broodstock feed affect their frequency of spawning, clutch size, egg quality and overall seedstock output.
