The focus of this paper is on the results of a multidisciplinary research and development program implemented by ICLARM and its partners since 1988 under the auspices of two projects: the “Genetic Improvement of Farmed Tilapia” (GIFT) and the “Dissemination and Evaluation of Genetically Improved Tilapia in Asia” (DEGITA). The program has two themes: (a) evaluation of Nile tilapia genetic resources and their utilization in national breeding programs; and (b) monitoring of the adoption of improved Nile tilapia breeds with regard to their impact on equity, the environment and biodiversity.
