Tilapia Virtual Library

Compiled by Maria Bello, Librarian, NOAA Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC), Miami, FL
and Eileen McVey, Aquaculture Information Specialist, NOAA Central Library, Silver Spring, MD

This database is an initial effort to isolate the most relevant publications on the feeding, diet formulations, dietary supplements, and other nutritional research as well as the effects on growth and reproduction for aquaculture of Tilapia species in the family Cichlidae. The selection focuses on research for aureaus, niloticus, and mossambicus and their hybrids although other species may be included. Publication dates range from 1990 to 2005. The scope is international and some of the citations may refer to publications not available in the English language. Citations were taken from the Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts database.

Any additional suggestions for contributions to this page are welcome. Please contact the Aquaculture Information Specialist, Eileen McVey, to submit citations for consideration. Please include article title, book or series title, author, publisher, date of publication and other relevant information such as URL when contributing a citation. We hope to update this bibliographfy annually as time and resources allow.
