    Oreochromis aureus Cage Culture of Tilapia The traditional method of raising tilapia in earthen ponds has been accompanied by two other techniques during the 20th century: cage raising and tank raising. Each technique comes with its own pros and cons and a method highly suitable for one situation may be far from ideal under other circumstances. The most appropriate species or strains of tilapia for cage culture are Tilapia nilotica (Nile Tilapia), T. aurea (blue Tilapia), Florida red tilapia, Taiwan red tilapia, and hybrids between these species and strains. The choice of a species for culture depends mainly on availability, legal status, growth rate and cold tolerance.

Tank culture of Tilapia by Richard N. Uchida Download PDF EPUB FB2

The popularity of live tilapia in the marketplace has driven much of the development of the tank-based industry in the United States. In the southern region, indoor tank culture of tilapia allows year-round production and can be a good alternative to pond or cage culture.

Intensive tank culture offers several advantages over the use of ponds. Tilapia: Biology, Culture, and Nutrition comprehensively explores all types of tilapia with a detailed biologic description of the fish that takes readers from egg through harvesting. The book authoritatively discusses production issues such as feed nutrition, temperature, water quality, parasites, and disease control to guide readers on how to best encourage fast, efficient : $ Tank culture of Tilapia by Richard N.

The high density of fish in tanks disrupts breeding behavior and allows male and female tilapia to be grown togeth-er. Tilapia culture is currently practised in 95 countries all over the world and the number is expected to increase. This book discusses in detail the principles and practices of tilapia culture in the world.

It covers all the vital issues of farmed tilapia including: the biology, environmental requirements, semi-intensive culture, 3/5(4). Tilapia are cultured in tanks and raceways of varying sizes ( m 3) and shapes (circular, rectangular, square and oval).

An important characteristic of tank design is the effective removal of solid waste; a circular tank with a central drain is the most efficient design.

Intensive tank culture of tilapia, utili zing a suspended, bacterial-based treatment p rocess, has great potential in the deve lopment of the tilapia industry.

A restricted culture period limits the size of fish that can be harvested. In mixed-sex culture, tilapia are usually stocked at low rates to reduce competition for food and promote rapid growth. One month-old, l-gram fry are stocked at 2, to 6, per acre into growout ponds for a 4- to 5-month culture period.

Aquarium and tank studies have demonstrated that water from tilapia production tanks will reduce the severity of infections and increase survival when shrimp are challenged with pathogens. It appears that the polyculture of tilapia with shrimp encourages development of microbial communities (bacteria, algae, and fungi) that are closer to the Cited by: 1.
