Contamination of cultured Philippine Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) with O. mossambicus

Preliminary investigations of experimental and commercial stocks of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in the Philippines indicate contamination through interbreeding with wild O. mossambicus. Contamination was determined by polyacrylamide gel ...
