WorldFish provided 14,000 18th-generation Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) fry to the Jitra Aquaculture Extension Center in Malaysia.
This significant contribution, stemming from WorldFish's state-of-the-art Aquaculture Research Center, is a part of WorldFish's collaborative efforts with the Department of Fisheries in Malaysia which will disseminate the fry to hatcheries around the country.
“This initiative is not just about the transfer of high-quality GIFT fry. It represents our commitment to sustainable aquaculture, innovation, and our ongoing collaboration with the Malaysian Department of Fisheries,” said WorldFish director general, Essam Yassin Mohammed.
The delivery of the GIFT fry underscores WorldFish’s focus on enhancing seed production and dissemination, setting new standards in fish farming practices that are both sustainable and productive.
