Genetic parameters for survival during the grow-out period in the GIFT strain of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and correlated response to selection for harvest weight

The aims of this study were the estimation of genetic parameters for survival rate from tagging until harvest and the evaluation of the correlated response in survival rate to selection for harvest weight in the genetically improved farmed tilapia(GIFT) strain.
