The photo shows the only hatchery for Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus in Senegal. This hatchery is governmental and located in Région de Saint-Louis, département de Richard-Toll. According to the most recent statistics, 880,000 tilapia fry were produced in this hatchery to meet the demand of private and governmental fish farms. It may worth mentioning, no sex reversal of tilapia fry using hormones is done in the hatchery. Even though, this is the only hatchery at the moment, the establishing of a new hatchery is on the agenda and will be implemented soon.
