According to Aquaculture Production Technology Ltd (APT), the key to successful agriculture-aquaculture production is the use of improved, genetically selected strains. Classical genetic selection methods (excluding genetic engineering methods) are used to select for advantageous ‘economic traits’ of Tilapia.

APT have developed a range of services and their web site provides valuable information for would-be aquaculturalists, even if tilapia is not a species able to be farmed. Their background information regarding feasibility studies and the requirements to bring the product to market will help inform planning of future developments.
