The growth of unfed Oreochromis in cages is slow when compared with results obtained from those fed with suppIementary feeds. The length/weight relationship, growth and relative condition of the unfed fish compared favourably with the natural tilapia population in Hardap Dam. The production caged unred fish has potential as a cheap source of protein.
