Abstract Heritability estimates and genetic and phenotypic correlations were determined for length and weight at 45 and 90 days in the Auburn strain of Tilapia nilotica. Heritability estimates were determined by half-sib analysis from an experiment that contained 16 paternal half-sib families or 32 full-sib families, that is, two full-sib families nested in each of 16 paternal half-sib families. Average length and weight were 63 mm and 4.9 g at 45 days, and 99 mm and 18.6 g at 90 days. Sire… CONTINUE READING
