This photo shows a simple unit for the production and nursing of tilapia fry in Egypt. The whole unit is made of locally available materials, whether the structure or the incubators (made of clay pots). The estimated numbers of produced fry of this unit matches the size of the pond.
Ideally, before starting a production cycle, the hosting pond should be prepared to receive the swim-up tilapia fry produced in the unit including drying, water screening and fertilization.
The number of swim-up tilapia fry are released in the underneath pond and raised for enough time to reach the size of advanced fry or fingerlings.
