Hi NeilThe only way to maximize throughput production relative to maximum carrying capacity is via the management of a single tank system as a multi-cohort sequential stock management system. This we call the Production: Capacity Ratio (P:C ratio). Apart from reduced CAPEX per unit fish production, the benefits filter down to energy costs for aeration, carbon dioxide stripping and horizontal water ...

Malawi — a Fish Eating Nation Although Malawi is endowed with the ninth largest lake in the world and the third largest and second deepest lake in Africa, overfishing resulted in the collapse of the tilapia fishery around 1990- 1991. Tilapia, known locally as chambo, is the country’s favorite fish and now costs from US$ 4.00-8.00/kg (R55-110/ kg) for whole or live fish. This is a res ...

Hi BarryI'm glad you found value in the article. As mentioned in the article. A new wave of higher quality marine cultivated tilapia distinguished through branding simultaneously scooping-up top honors by seafood sustainability movements (RAS, BFT, IMTA etc) will be key to a new growth phase for tilapia aquaculture.We all need to stay the course!!!Best,Ray Kourie

Dear Rao Many thanks for your valid comments re androgen sex reversal of tilapia. At no point was it I who dubbed all-male tilapia as risky. I did mention however that green growth opportunities such as mixed sex production offers a market niche for tilapia among more discerning consumers. I believe the bulk of tilapia culture destined to feed local markets in developing countries would be unawa ...

Hi, RichardThanks for your comments above. You are absolutely right. Consumers need to know where the tilapia they may be interested to buy originate from. Traceability, certifications and branding will become mandatory to elevate the status of tilapia to a healthy and wholesome species choice and one that consumers would trust from a food safety perspective. Unidentified frying objects will not a ...

Thank you, Prakash and Daniel. I believe tilapia is the best whitefish species to supplement cod, haddock, hake, hoki, etc but its a must that we achieve both sustainable intensification, improved meat quality and improved food safety all simultaneously...poor quality pond farmed tilapia is not going to cut it. International and discerning local markets will need to be assured of food safety ...
