Genetic effects influencing salinity tolerance in six varieties of tilapia (Oreochromis) and their reciprocal crosses
Six tilapia varieties were used in two 6 × 6 diallel crosses to estimate the salinity tolerances of 2205 F1 juveniles from parental varieties and their reciprocal crosses, finding that maternal effects offset line effects, while in others, these influences were complementary. Expand
Genetic effects influencing salinity and cold tolerance in tilapia
Improvement in salinity tolerance and cold tolerance in tilapia varieties and crosses could be accomplished by developing a breeding program combining selection, hybridization and backcrossing in MO, BL and FL, while improvement of CT may be accomplish by selection and hybridization in BL. Expand
