The Atlas of Tilapia Histology provides a key reference work on normal anatomy and histology of Oreochromis niloticus. The book is comprehensive with 197 full color annotated plates depicting Tilapia strains, gross anatomy with dissections and histology.
This book contains 13 peer-reviewed and edited papers that were presented at the workshop, “Biosecurity in Aquaculture Production Systems: Exclusion of Pathogens and Other Undesirables,” held in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 23-26, 2001
Review papers and reports of original research by leading experts on microbial ecology, water quality, pond dynamics, rumen ecosystems, wastewater treatment, and a variety of aquaculture production systems.
The growth in the demand for and culture of shrimp has exceeded most expectations and this growth is expected to continue until at least 2025. A proper knowledge of the economics, market and trade for shrimp is now as important to shrimp farmers and aquaculture scientists in the future of shrimp, as is disease management or husbandry.

Intensive tilapia co-culture is the commercial production of various species of tilapia in conjunction with one or more other marketable species. Tilapia are attractive as a co-cultured fish because of their potential to improve water quality, especially in penaeid shrimp ponds, by consuming plankton and detritus and by altering pathogenic bacterial populations while increasing marketable production.
