This will be the sixth of the highly successful series of symposia that have brought together tilapia biologists to review the latest discoveries in tilapia biology, ecology, improvements in production systems and other fields related to tilapia and their use in aquaculture. This will be the first of the symposia to be held in the Philippines after earlier meetings in Israel, Thailand, Cote D’Ivoire, U.S., and Brazil. This symposium will have a special emphasis on the rapid advances in genetics, development of advanced breeds, the development of international markets, and opening new markets for Philippine produced tilapia products. This symposium will include a trade show, which will provide a forum for industry suppliers, seafood marketers and the aquaculture press to meet directly with researchers and producers. Field trips are being organized to nearby aquaculture sites.
