This manual is directed towards those persons with an interest in
learning more about tilapia culture, the fundamentals of tilapia
reproduction and rearing of fry on the fish farm. It was prepared for
individuals that already have some experience in the culture of tilapia or
other species of fish.
The production of tilapia for sale in local markets has expanded rapidly
in Latin-America in the past few years, in part as a response to the
growth of commercial production and export of tilapia to markets in
North America. A factor that has limited the development of tilapia
production in the region is the lack of quality seed available during the
entire year.
Tilapia seed consists of the fry and fingerlings required to stock a pond
or tank to commence a new production cycle. Typical of any agricultural
production system, having available good quality seed at the correct
moment is crucial to obtaining a good harvest and making a profit.
The technical terms and words underlined in the text of the manual are
included and defined in the glossary at the end of this document.
