Abstract: Tilapia mosambica was introduced into Lake Ano, Vava'u in 1957 and has established a good fishery stock to the previously poor producing, isolated, brackish water lake. The success is due to good management and cooperation of the people living near the lake as well as the adaptability of the tilapia species.
