Abstract A two generation selection experiment in Nile tilapia ( O. niloticus , Lake Manzala, Egypt) was carried out to test whether the proportion of males after temperature treatment could be sustainably influenced by selection. Starting with 45 families as a base population the families were tested for their thermal sensitivity in the following way. After a 9-day incubation period at 28 °C, fry of each family were subdivided into a control (28 °C) and a treatment group, each consisting of… CONTINUE READING
