The inserted photos show the production and distribution of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings in Senegal. Typically, all-male tilapia is produced via hormonal treatment using 17-alpha methyl testosterone. The pictures have been taken in a private tilapia hatchery located in the central part of Senegal. The sponsor of this program is “Fonds National de Recherches Agricoles et Agro-alimentaires (FNRAA)”. One of the inserted photos shows the delivery of the all-male tilapia fingerlings of about 5-g size to target farmers.
