tilapia

A Tilapia fish takes 34 weeks to grow to full size and it is the third most popular used in fish farming after Carp and Salmon. In the wild, it feeds on algae but on farms, corn or soybean meals are its food. The fish survives only in warm waters. Tilapia male has proved more profitable as they grow bigger and more time and energy-efficient.

Tilapia is among those most farmed species in terms of producing countries and the world’s most popular aquaculture species. The Egyptians have been farming these fish for thousands of years while the country ranks first in fish farming.

The Tilapia larvae feeds on their yolk sac after hatching. A higher survival rate is secured providing all fry with an equal opportunity to feed in hatcheries.Fingerlings’ immune system is still fragile demanding more attention. Fully fledged Tilapia growers require ideal nutrition at the right time to optimize growth and feed efficacy.
