Intensive tank culture of tilapia in Tanzania (Video)

Video credit: Fadhili Ruzika (Tanzania)  – Review: Abdel Rahman El Gamal (Founder of the video channel)

The vigorous feeding of tilapia as shown in the present video indicates the high density of stocked fish in the tank. The video also shows that the feed provided has been -most likely- mixed on the farm. Regarding the market size, the size of tilapia as shown in the clip has not reached the market size yet and hence, more time will be required before harvesting.

Tanzanian aquaculture with its current 5000 tons in 2016 is composed mainly of tilapia contributed with 3800 tons in 2016 representing more than 75% of total aquaculture in Tanzania. The imports of tilapia whether in the form of frozen fish or chilled fillets indicates decent demand on tilapia in Tanzania.
