Til-Aqua International changes policy 

Lessons learned from TiLV and COVID-19

Like many other companies, we are currently confronted with transport issues – limited available flights and closed borders – due to the Coronavirus. The import restrictions that some countries have taken regarding the Tilapia Lake Virus had already severely limited our current operations.

As a result, we decided to change course drastically so as not to lose 25 years of genetic effort: we have put our genetics for sale to interested parties. We believe that transferring our YY technology to countries for local YY production is the best option. These parties would own YY-males and YY-females and would receive the information on how to maintain these lines.

With these fish, they can produce their own YY-males; the broodstock that produces NMT offspring. These YY-males can be both used for own NMT production and distributed to interested parties.

NMT production has since stopped. We will be able to supply our YY-males until the end of December 2020.

We are now in advanced negotiations in the process of transferring the YY technology to various parties worldwide. As soon we have more information we will publish it on our website.
