Abstract

Maria Nayfa investigated the effects of domestication on the Abassa Strain of Nile tilapia. She found that despite high error rates in pedigree records, the Abassa Strain is salvageable, and production enhanced. WorldFish is using the results of her study to improve management of the Abassa Strain and plan dissemination efforts for the line in Egypt.
