The American Soybean Association (ASA), in cooperation with the China National Fisheries Extension Center (NEC) and its affiliate provincial agencies, has conducted a series of production trials with native and imported fish species since 1991 to demonstrate and evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of feed-based fish culture in China. Tilapia have been one of the key imported species evaluated for both pond and cage production in China. ASA continued its evaluation of tilapia in 1997 with a feeding trial that examined the production performance of red tilapia in LVHD cages with soybean meal-based feeds.
