|KIFI staff eagerly collecting 3-Spot tilapia for screening, separating male and female for conditioning|
KIFI staff started the screening of 3-Spot tilapia (Oreochromis andersonii) in order to separate males from females. Over winter conditioning of the males and females will take place in pond K1 (male) and K2 (female) from June to August. Final selection of brooders (200 male and 400 female) and replacement (60 male and 120 female) will take place during August 2018 for conditioning in order to start breeding from October 2018 to March 2019 according to the Aquaculture management plan of KIFI (last image).
Job well done...!!!
