Tilapia nolotica fingerlings were grown to marketable size in cages in Laguna Lake at a stocking density of 150/m super(2). Those given supplemental feed of ipil-ipil leaf meal at varying levels showed faster growth compared to the control given rice bran alone. Experiments in aquaria showed that T. nilotica) can tolerate high concentrations of ipil-ipil leaf meal in feeds without showing any symptom of toxicity. Costs and returns analysis was done.
