Abstract
By virtue of their interesting biology and importance in the development of inland fisheries, Tilapia have received considerable attention from both scientists and fisheries workers in Africa. In Tanzania, where they are widely acceptable as food, Tilapia are found in many lakes and rivers, making in some areas the largest contribution to the commercial catch. They have also been used for pond culture and for stocking, in attempts to broaden certain existing fisheries and to establish new ones in small lakes and dams.
