The inserted video was filmed in a private fish farm in Togo showing the stocking of all-male Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings of about 3 to 5 gram as an average weight. Typically, the stocking rate in such system is around three fingerlings/m2 whereas the growing season lasts about six months. The feed used in such farms is extruded feed which is imported from either France or Ghana.
According to FAO, the production of farmed tilapia amounted 278 tons in 2018 representing more than 95% of total aquaculture production in Togo in 2018.
