2023. Nile tilapia value chain in Côte d'Ivoire: support for a genetic improvement program at the National Agricultural Research Centre (FAO - FISH4ACP - GCP/GLO/028/EC). Read more...

FISH4ACP is a FAO programme promoting the potential of fisheries and aquaculture in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.

FISH4ACP supports the development of the Nile tilapia value chain in Côte d’Ivoire by improving the availability of quality fingerlings and feed, and building local capacity.

In partnership with UGeRAA (ULiege), CERER-Pisciculture provided support to the Côte d’Ivoire National Agricultural Research Centre for the development of a genetic selection and improvement programme for Nile tilapia local strains . The actions implemented aimed at evaluating local genetic resources and their management methods, setting up a strategy for developing an improved strain and a genetic selection programme, proposing methods for the zootechnical and genetic characterisation of tilapia strains, and identifying the material and human requirements needed to build capacity.
