With the recent availability of genetically improved Nile tilapia strain in the Philippines, it is important to look at the existing profile of tilapia hatchery operations in the country to help examine the potential strategies in the dissemination of the improved strain among hatchery operators. This paper attempts to analyze the socioeconomics and production efficiency status of tilapia hatcheries in the Philippines prior to the adoption of genetically improved Nile tilapia strain.
