Tilapia major clinical signs (Odia version)

The purpose of this poster is to enhance the capacity of hatcheries, nurseries, grow-out farmers and extension service providers to recognize and report tilapia diseases. Prevention, early recognition, diagnosis and rapid intervention are the best steps to manage aquatic animal diseases. If you observe clinical signs, abnormal behaviour and unusual mortality, contact your local aquaculture health professionals to report and ask for support.
 

Tilapia epidemiology and health economics online survey tool

According to figures from the FAO, Egypt and Bangladesh are the third and fourth largest tilapia producers, respectively, after China and Indonesia. Absence of accurate baseline data relating to fish health, disease occurrence, diagnostic services and health economic hamper surveillance and disease control efforts. To overcome some of these shortcomings, and generate background data upon which trends and emerging issues may be assessed, WorldFish and partners developed a Tilapia epidemiology and health economics online survey tool.

Efficacy and safety of boric acid as a preventive treatment against Saprolegnia infection in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

Saprolegniosis is a worldwide fungal-like infection affecting freshwater fishes and their eggs. Reports show high mortalities and subsequent economic losses annually from Saprolegnia infections. Most therapeutants against Saprolegnia spp. infections are inefficient and some have negative impact on the environment. In this study, we have investigated the ability of boric acid (BA) to prevent Saprolegnia infection in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus).
 

Tilapia lake virus (TiLV): Putting a global resource at risk

Tilapia lake virus is a newly emerging virus that is associated with significant mortalities in farmed tilapia. With cases reported across Africa, Asia and South America, the virus represents a huge risk to the global tilapia industry, whose 2015 production was valued at USD 9.8 billion. All countries with a tilapia industry must be vigilant and act quickly to investigate cases of mortalities in farms.

Experimental infection reveals transmission of tilapia lake virus (TiLV) from tilapia broodstock to their reproductive organs and fertilized eggs

Early developmental stages of tilapia, including fertilized eggs were tested positive for TiLV in a previous study. We, therefore, hypothesized that infected broodstock is able to pass the virus to their reproductive organs and then to the fertilized eggs. In order to prove this hypothesis, Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) broodstock were experimentally infected with TiLV by intramuscular injection and non-infected broodstock were used as control group.

WorldFish in India

India is a scaling country for WorldFish and the CGIAR Research Program on FISH. This growing program assists the government and private sector to scale various fisheries and aquaculture technologies in India.

AquaLINC Project Final Workshop

In Bangladesh, the aquaculture production has grown rapidly with the production of fish from aquaculture in 2017-2018 being 24.5 lakh MT, accounting for 56% of total fish production. Within the aquaculture sector, the production of tilapia has grown rapidly from 15,000 MT in 2006-2007 to, 3.85 lakh MT in 2017-2018. It has been projected that in 2030, the total aquaculture production of the country could potentially reach to 80 lakh MT with the production of tilapia being 10 lakh MT.
