Influence of maternal size on the hatching rate of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) eggs
Paloma D De Chavez and Remedios B Bolivar
This experiment compared the number of eggs produced and the hatching rates of different maternal sizes of Oreochromis niloticus
to determine if their sizes really affect its hatching rates.
Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) showed that there was significant difference in the number of eggs produced (P<0.05). Highest mean of the number of eggs produced was obtained from Treatment 2 with a mean of 932.00 followed by Treatment 3 with a mean 899.33 and Treatment 1 with a mean of 335.33.
Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) revealed that hatching rates from the different maternal sizes of O. niloticus has no significant differences (P>0.05) among treatments. The hatching rate in Treatment 1 was 91.93%; Treatment 2 was 89.85%; and Treatment 3 was 93.82%.
