Tank spawning of Nile tilapia in Aswan (Egypt) – Video

Video credit: Jhons Huayanay Ostos (Peru)

Review: Abdel Rahman El Gamal (Founder of the video channel)





This video was filmed in a large size tilapia hatchery in Aswan, Egypt. This hatchery belongs to the Lake Nasser Development Authority. The hatchery-produced of Nile tilapia, (Oreochromis niloticus) are used for a stock enhancement program for Lake Nasser. The video shows the outdoor facility that consists of series of concrete tanks.  In fact, the genetic purity of produced fingerlings is considerably high since broodstock are always abundant from the lake and no genetic programs are taking place in the hatchery practices.
