Tilapia Seed and Grow-Out Production

Known as the “aquatic chicken,” the tilapia is a poor man’s fish that grows fast and breeds easily in captivity. It is considered as one of the easiest fishes to culture. It is also relatively tolerant to a wide range of salinity and temperature levels. Moreover, farming tilapia requires minimal inputs.

Technology Profile (Seed Production)

Tilapia hatcheries are of three types: (1) concrete tanks, (2) netcages in lakes, and (3) ponds. Concrete tanks give the highest production followed by hapa netcages in lakes and ponds. One of the reasons for the difference in seed production is the quality and varying temperature in the rearing water used for spawning.
