The photos show a local system for transporting the fingerlings of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus produced from natural spawning system carried out in earthen ponds -as seen in one of the photos-  of about 500 m2.  The transportation tank as shown in the photo is a plastic can of a volume that can range from 10 – 40 liters. The aeration of the tank is done using a bicycle pump. The survival of transported fingerlings in this method is very high and can reach up to 100%”

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
