Six tilapia varieties were used in two 6 × 6 diallel crosses. Salinity was increased in daily increments of 7 g L−1 in five replicate trials to estimate the salinity tolerances of 2205 F1 juveniles from parental varieties and their reciprocal crosses. Genetic effects potentially influencing salinity tolerance were estimated, including line effects, maternal effects, reciprocal and specific reciprocal effects, direct heterosis, specific combining abilities (SCAs) and general combining abilities… Expand
Effect of salinity on three tilapia (Oreochromis sp.) strains: hatching rate, length and yolk sac size
TLDR
Insight is provided of morphological differences related to salinity tolerance at early stages, as smaller hatching size and increased yolk sac utilization at salinity >35‰ are provided. Expand
Selection for enhanced growth performance of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in brackish water (15–20 ppt) in Vietnam
TLDR
It is concluded that the selective breeding programme has succeeded in developing a productive strain of Nile tilapia under brackish water systems, but the future work should include survival rate in the recording system, selection index and breeding objective. Expand
Response to selection for growth in an interspecific hybrid between Oreochromis mossambicus and O. niloticus in two distinct environments
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to estimate growth performance and survival of the hybrid in two rearing environments following four generations of genetic selection, and to show the improvement of the survival rate according to the generation in intensive and extensive systems. Expand
Reproduction and sex ratio in red Saint Peter tilapia, under different salinities
The effect of different salinities (0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 ppt) was analysed on the reproductive performance of red tilapia, Oreochromissp., var. Saint Peter. Couples were selected forExpand
Effects of salinity on the growth, survival, haematological parameters and osmoregulation of tambaqui Colossoma macropomum juveniles
TLDR
It can be concluded that exposure to salinity significantly affects the survival, growth, haematological parameters and physiological response of tambaqui. Expand
Genetic Effects and Estimates for the Heritability of Size in Fingerling Hybrid Striped Bass Reared Indoors
TLDR
A breeding program could be used to select parental lines that produce faster growing hybrid offspring from selected pure-line parents based on significant sire and dam effects and high heritabilities. Expand
DNA Barcoding Identifies a Unique Haplotype of Nile Tilapia Oreochromis niloticus Thriving in Egyptian Freshwater and Brackish Water Lakes
TLDR
A newly identified haplotype with natural tolerance to different salinities could be identified from both studied lakes, which can contribute much to the genetic enhancement of tilapia aquaculture using new parents with more capability to tolerate salinity differences, producing then pure or hybrid offsprings with further ameliorated salinity tolerance.

Interpopulation crossbreeding of farmed and wild African catfish Clarias gariepinus (Burchell 1822) in Indonesia at the nursing stage
TLDR
The study suggested that the Egypt female × Netherlands male (EN) crossbreed has high potential to improve offspring quality in the near future and a correlation between the OS and the SR; the higher the OS, the lower the SR. Expand
Transcriptomic analysis of Crassostrea sikamea × Crassostrea angulata hybrids in response to low salinity stress
TLDR
This study will serve as a platform for subsequent gene expression analysis regarding environmental stress and provide valuable information about gene expression to better understand the immune mechanism, apoptosis, energy metabolism and osmoregulation in hybrid oysters under low salinity stress. Expand
Selection of reference genes for expression analysis of Kumamoto and Portuguese oysters and their hybrid
TLDR
Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) is a rapid and reliable technique which has been widely used to quantifying gene transcripts (expression analysis) and primers specific for these genes were successfully developed for the three groups of oysters. Expand

Genetic improvement of farmed tilapias: growth performance in a complete diallel cross experiment with eight strains of Oreochromis niloticus
TLDR
It was concluded that specific crossing schemes, possibly involving specialised sire and dam lines, may improve growth performance in Nile tilapia, but that this improvement will be quite marginal and should be accompanied by selection within the parent strains. Expand
Genetic evaluation of four strains of Oreochromis shiranus for harvest body weight in a diallel cross
TLDR
The results show that for harvest body weight there are substantial additive genetic and total heterosis differences among pure and crossbred strains of O. shiranus and the exploitation of these genetic differences in a breeding program is discussed. Expand
Salinity tolerance in superior genotypes of tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, Oreochromis mossambicus and their hybrids
TLDR
Compared the culture performance of two strains of genetically improved O. niloticus and two stocks of Oreochromis mossambicus and their hybrids, growth was higher for all genotypes at elevated salinities, and regression analyses of relative weight and biomass gain showed highly significant correlations with salinity. Expand
Effects of Intraspecific Hybridization in Tilapia nilotica on Survival Under Ambient Winter Temperature in Alabama
TLDR
Viability under ambient winter temperatures in Alabama in T. nilotica appears to be controlled by additive rather than by dominance effects, which means that selection rather than crossbreeding is the breeding technique that should be evaluated to improve this trait in T-nilotica. Expand
Offspring Growth in a Diallel Crossbreeding with Three Strains of Nile Tilapia Oreochromis niloticus
TLDR
A complete diallel crossing of three strains, Stirling, Korean and Local, was used to evaluate heterosis of intraspecific crossbreeding on early growth of Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus and in purebred females Stirling was superior to Korean, but not the Local strain and all F-1 hybrid crosses. Expand
A simple test to estimate the salinity resistance of fish with specific application to O. niloticus and S. melanotheron
TLDR
This criterion can be a useful tool for ranking the different parental strains and hybrids of different genus and species of tilapia used in programmes of genetic selection for growth and salinity tolerance. Expand
The Effects of Salinity on Reproductive Performance of Florida Red Tilapia
TLDR
The results suggest that Florida red tilapia broodstock may be maintained under salinities as high as 18 ppt without impairing fry production, suggesting that hatchery production in brackishwater would be practical in areas where freshwater resources are limiting. Expand
DEVELOPMENT OF A COLD‐TOLERANT POPULATION OF RED TILAPIA THROUGH INTROGRESSIVE HYBRIDIZATION
TLDR
A population of red tilapia with cold tolerance traits similar to Tilapia aurea has been produced using introgressive breeding techniques, i.e., hybridization followed by backcrossing, and progeny of the F-1 backcross survived longer under conditions of ambient cooling than either T. a Aurea or T. mossambica.

TLDR
The ontogeny of salinity tolerance was studied in the tilapias Oreochromis aureus, O. niloticus, and an O. mossambicus × O.niloticus hybrid, spawned and reared in freshwater and determined to be more closely related to body size than to chronological age. Expand
Study of sex ratio in progeny of a complex Oreochromis hybrid, the Florida red tilapia
TLDR
The stability of sex ratios in repeated single pair matings and the parental influence on progeny sex ratios obtained are in agreement with a polygenic basis of sex determination in this complex hybrid. Expand
