Spanning nearly three decades, a selective #breeding program that began in 1988 led to the #development of the Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) strain. The GIFT strain grows 100% faster than the #fish used at the beginning of the program and thrives in a wide range of environments. More in this factsheet: http://bit.ly/1KDf4gn
