Optimizing Tilapia Cultivation: The Impact of Stocking Density on Growth and Survival of Fingerlings

In an effort to enhance the efficiency of tilapia cultivation, recent research offers valuable insights into the influence of stocking density on the growth and survival of tilapia fingerlings (Oreochromis niloticus). This study explores how different stocking densities affect the specific growth rate and survival rate of tilapia, providing valuable data for more sustainable aquaculture practices.

The research findings indicate that optimal stocking density can improve the growth and survival of tilapia fingerlings. A density of 100 individuals per square meter yielded the most favorable results, with a specific growth rate recorded at 5.58% and a survival rate reaching 94%. This underscores the essential need for appropriate stocking density management to maximize production potential.

These findings offer guidance to fish farmers on the importance of regulating stocking density to achieve optimal cultivation outcomes while prioritizing fish welfare. By implementing the recommendations from this study, it is hoped that tilapia production efficiency can be enhanced, thereby supporting the sustainability of aquaculture environments.
