Tilapia strain resistant to damaging virus could help reduce losses

The discovery of a strain of Nile tilapia resistant to tilapia lake virus (TiLV) may prove useful in the fight to reduce the impact of the pathogen, which has emerged in the last decade and can cause extremely high mortalities among farmed fish.
