1996. The Global Invasive Species Database contains invasive species information supplied by experts on biological invasion from around the world. Owing to its hardy nature, and its wide range of trophic and ecological adaptations, it has been widely introduced for aquaculture, augmentation of capture fisheries and sport fishing (Trewavas, 1983; Welcomme, 1988), and is now found in every … Cien. Blue tilapia (Oreochromis aureus) is a cold tolerant species that can live in both freshwater and brackish water.Thanks to these favorable characteristics it has become a popular species among fish farmers world wide and especially in regions where cold … 191-204, Volume 15, Issue 4 – 15 October 2009 Abstract Oreochromis niloticus, O. aureus and specimens with an external appearance intermediate between these putative parents were sampled from Lake Edku and examined to determine the hybrid nature of the intermediate specimens. Oreochromis aureus Blue tilapia Nico, L. 2007. Aims: The goal of this study was to monitor the quantitative and qualitative bacterial flora in the intestine of hybrid tilapia in fresh fish and fish kept in frozen storage conditions for 1 year. 48: 487-494.

It was created by cross breeding and a male Blue tilapia (Oreochromis aureus) of the ND-1 Tilapia family line with a female Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) of the ND-2 Tilapia family line.The ND-1 and ND-2 Tilapia family lines were both created by selectively line breeding Tilapia fish with desirable characteristics.

In Hawaii, Oreochromis aureus and Oreochromis hornorum tilapias are easily available, but currently, little is known about the somatic growth characteristics of the two tilapia species. This study was conducted to compare and evaluate the productive performance characteristics of the base generation (F0) of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus and Blue tilapia, Oreochromis aureus under the effect of interspecific hybridization and genetically modified breeding by introducing a fragmented purified DNA isolated from O. aureus or O. niloticus into the gonads … Characters Maximum size: 508 mm TL (Hensley and Courteney 1980). 1991:48-49. 45335); aureus: From the Greek words oreos=of the mountains and chroma=color; aureus (Latin)=golden from aurum, gold (Ref.
