This book displays various topics related to current issues that seek to improve our understanding and strategies on the present and future of the tilapia culture. This book has gathered internationally known experts who have prepared original communications in different themes on the use and development of tilapia resources. Experiences related to culture, broodstock management, identifying plans, and technological reconversion strategies are presented; as well as evidence of acclimatization in lake systems; additionally, there is a study on the expectations and use of tilapia skin among the chapters that will be of great interest to improve the opportunities for use of this singular resource.

Also included is this book is an interesting and deep analysis on the possible competitive relations of tilapia resources, versus other fish species that emerge with extensive aquacultural expectations. This book will be of great use to the researcher, students who seek to have a deeper understanding about the various alternatives to implement plans for sustainable management of this unique resource and environment, and to farmers looking for alternative techniques and value to enable them to improve their production yields.
