Abstract: The candidate fish were collected from the Kainji lake basin and the integrated fish farm NIFFR. Thirty-six females and twelve males from each of Oreochromis niloticus and Tilapia zillii with the average weight and length of the females ranges from 14.8cm – 20.40cm and weighed 51.70g - 120.50g while male breeders 17.32cm – 23.62cm and weighed 98.60g – 180.00g.
