Abstract: Results of a 120-day study showed that Nile tilapia fingerlings produced in incubation units, hapas or ponds exhibited similar growout performance. Although not statistically significant, the tilapia from artificial incubation units performed optimally. Fish from hapas also did very well. These treatments produced the greatest yield of fish, and a greater proportion of harvested animals fell in larger size categories.
