Tilapia is one of the most popular fish species for farming and is second in terms of volume after carps. WorldFish has been working for decades on fish genetic improvement and dissemination activities across Asia and Africa.
A number of studies have highlighted the promising growth of Egyptian tilapia aquaculture and the role of genetically improved strains in this development, such as the Abbassa Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus, Linneaus, 1758). However, few studies have explored the link between aquaculture development and changes in fish demand among low-income consumers.
