The booklet explains the better management practices (BMP) for producing high-quality genetically improved farmed tilapia (GIFT) monosex seed. These simple and low-cost methods have been tested and proven over five years of research and development in Timor-Leste. The goal is to support the scaling of fish farming to contribute to food and nutrition security.
This nutrition brief outlines the rationale and focus of the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste Phase 2 (PADTL2) project for enhancing the nutritional benefits of scaling out tilapia farming for targeted Timorese communities. The PADTL2 project (2020–2023) adopts a nutrition-sensitive approach focused on increasing the availability, accessibility, and consumption of fish.
This poster highlights the nutritional benefits of eating fish and is targeted at households in Timor-Leste. Eating tilapia is good for everyone, including pregnant and lactating women, babies, infants, children, and the elderly. Consumption of tilapia supports healthy growth and development, prevents heart diseases, and contributes to good brain function.
