There is no certainty of when and how was introduced in the island of Margarita, however, there is precedent for research in 1998, about three experiences of culture with Tilapia FRY brought from Carabobo State and developed in Sector termites, San Francisco of Macanao and Aricagua. Lonnie Smith is full of insight into the issues. Faced with this situation, the breeding calls on researchers and technicians who make scientific life on the island, as well as government agencies – Ministry of the environment, INSOPESCA, among others – to form an inter-agency team with the aim of collecting the necessary information from field at the regional level and elucidate what the situation of Tilapia in the watershed and coastal zone, its abundance, environmental and biological factors that encourage or limit the development and progress of this species. Also, stressed Prof. Julio Cesar Rodriguez, it is urgent to find the effective technique of controlling the increase of its population in favor of the conservation of local species the Minister of Agriculture of Venezuela, Elias Jaua Milano, said that you food crisis that the countries that integrate Petrocaribe live and dawn took the decision to create this Fund with a contribution of 50 cents for every barrel that Venezuela exports and that this over one hundred dollarsan estimate that this year will be around $ 450 million has been on that basis.This Fund be increased to the extent that Venezuela sells more oil and to the extent that prices stay above $ 100, we believe that the funds will generate not only contributions from Venezuela but that we will be adding wills of other oil-producing countries.The Venezuelan official pointed out that the parameters of use of funds are dictated in the ministerial declaration, and the technical secretariat which will meet in Cuba it will establish, valuing the projects already presented, the mechanism more expeditious to access the funds, which are not only funding for producers.Funds will be distributed between Federation of farmers, cooperatives, peasant organizations and livestock, in this way are going to go by approving projects through the Ministry of agriculture and livestock which will be elevated to the instance of the technical Council, after the Council of Ministers immediately and the Summit of Presidents begin the entire process of development meaningful data consideredUnited States is a large importer of this species, which constitutes the third most imported by that country aquatic product, after the Atlantic salmon and the shrimp. In China, most of the production is for domestic consumption. One smaller percentage is exported to United States and, to a lesser extent, to other destinations. This great tasting fish is sold in fillets. Large producers of tilapia are Asian countries, that you represent 80% of the world production, with China in the lead, followed by Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Taiwan.
The latter is precisely the first exporter in the world. Other exporting countries are Colombia, Ecuador, Honduras and Costa Rica. China is the leader in the production of tilapia, as it provides 42% of the world supply, with 1.1 million tons (2006). China this fish was introduced in 1956, from Viet Nam and Africa. The evolution of the production of tilapia in China has been surprising. In 1999 only 562.000 tons, produced half of what is currently produced.
