Hi Dave, Many thanks for your detailed reply, it was very helpful. My research has resulted in the production of Tilapia in full strength Atlantic seawater. Growth is slower and reproduction levels are lower than fresh water. However, we have commercial results. Now the remaining problem is the supply of suitable feed which is extremely expensive. I am currently experimenting with Duck Weed, using ...
