With the onset of Tilapia Lake Virus (TiLV) outbreaks in several Asian countries, WorldFish, in collaboration with Bangladesh’s Department of Fisheries, has developed a program to improve biosecurity in the tilapia industry throughout the country. As the first step, a training program has been designed and conducted to train a group of specialists called Master Trainers on improving tilapia hatchery biosecurity.

This manual is a result of that program. The Master Trainers will use this manual for training tilapia hatchery technicians countrywide on how to improve biosecurity in hatcheries.

This work was undertaken as part of the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH). This publication was made possible through support provided by the Department of Fisheries, Bangladesh and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded Aquaculture for Income and Nutrition (AIN) project.
