Description

Oreochromis niloticus.png
  • Oreochromis niloticus is a species of tilapia, a cichlid fish native to Africa from Egypt south to east and central Africa, and as far west as Gambia. It is also native to Israel, and numerous introduced populations exist outside its natural range. As a gonochoristic teleost fish with an XX/XY sex-determining system, it provides an excellent model for studying gonadal sex differentiation because genetic all-females and all-males are available[1][2].
