Polyculture of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and Australian red claw crayfish (Cherax quadricarinatus) in earthen ponds.

The objectives of this study were to determine whether species interaction be-tween the Nile tilapia and the red claw crayfish in polyculture would be synergis tic or antagonistic in terms of growth rate and total production, and to assess the impact of red claw crayfish on tilapia reproduction in ponds.
