This issue of Naga features three articles about a project on the Genetic Improvement of Farmed Tilapias (GIFT) and a related article on the trend to genetic deterioration in some carp hatcheries. The first is on the genesis of the project — from relatively modest collaborative research efforts that began in the early 1980s to some of the significant results from the GIFT project.
The Genetic Improvement of Farmed Tilapias (GIFT) project: the story so far.
