The main objectives of this study were to evaluate growth performance and estimate line crossing parameters of improved Abbassa tilapia strain and a commerciall Manzala strain within a complete diallel cross at 6 weeks old after hathing. This is done in order to determine the optimum utilization of these strains and crosses for the production of premiun growth and survival of tilapia seeds.
