Final harvesting of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus in earthen ponds in Egypt (Video)

This video shows the last batch harvest of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in a medium size earthen pond (about 1-ha). For quality aspects, fish producers try their best to carry out most of tilapia harvest in 30-40 cm-water depth. However, regardless the fishing gears, there will be always left over tilapia in earthen ponds and should be harvested before declaring a complete harvest. The video shows harvesting tilapia from a drained pond while allowing water to attract fish into the harvest zone.

Note: the credit of these video clips goes to colleagues who participated in aquaculture training courses organized by the Egyptian International Centre for Agriculture (EICA). I am trying to identify the colleagues who donated me these clips and I will personalize the credits if I am successful in my attempt.
