Projecten

My PhD project is about investigating opportunities to reduce the yield gap, the difference in small-holder tilapia farms productivity between the best performers and lower performs ,in Nile tilapia farming and develop solutions that can be used in breeding programs aimed at Nile Tilapia production by small holder farmers. In this project we will investigate the ontogeny of growth and survival over time in contrasting, commercially relevant farming environments. The objectives of this project are to investigate whether: (1) recording genetics of survival at different stages during fingerling rearing and grow-out can be used to improve survival by selection, (2) genotype by environment interaction is substantial for growth and survival, when measured from fingerling stage onwards, and (3) selection on growth rate and survival under the right environmental conditions will improve feed efficiency and economic profitability. This project will yield important information for the development of breeding programmes tailored towards Nile Tilapia production on small- and medium sized farms.
