The study of tilapia culture in saline water in Iran consider as a subproject of a comprehensive project on introduction of tilapia to central regions of the country. Two types of red and black of the exotic tilapia were imported from Indonesia in 2009 for research and were transferred to the research center of Bafgh. Since tilapia has capabilities in aquaculture such as resistance to diseases, fast growth, tolerance high intensity, growth in freshwater, brackish water and in saline water, also ability to grow in pond, cage and aquaculture tanks, so it is likely that its production will have economic advantages. The present study showed that the growth of black fishes were more than red fishes in salt water. Results of data analyses also showed that hindrance percent of black tilapia would be about 90.87 percent and in red tilapia would be about 99.5 percent and hindrance percent of red tilapia has been more than black tilapia in the culture tanks too.
