Breeding plan for Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in Indonesia: individual selection.

The International Network on Genetics in Aquaculture (INGA) was established in 1993 with the objective to contribute through collaborative research, to the domestication and sustainable performance of tropical finfish species farmed in developing countries and to strengthen national capabilities for genetic enhancement through exchange of germplasm, methodologies and through training and interactive forums. To realize this objective, the network has been assisting the member countries in developing regional research programs and plans for national breeding programs. This report details plans for selective breeding of GIFT strain Nile tilapia in Indonesia using individual selection.
