MetadataShow full item record
Fishery scientist and researchers at the freshwater Aquaculture Center of the Central Luzon State University (CLSU-FAC) here are improving the hue of the red tilapia to make it more attractive to a growing market for this variety. Dr. Tereso Abella, leader of the "Genetic Enhancement of the Red Nile Tilapia Breeding Program" of the CLSU-FAC, said their tests aimed to produce a brighter, "flaming red" variety. The program is funded by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARD), which said the red tilapia is much sought after because of its appealing color.
