Adecision has been made on which stocking system has been more effective on which size grading of stocking, starting the stocking with different size grading compositions. In another dimension of the study; it's been researched that in what amount would this situation effects when individual with variable weights are placed randomly compared to placements with either only small or large. At the end of the research hybrids were higher growth value than nile tilapia. Furthermore, mixed groups either hybrids, or nile tilapia groups were made better growth rate and FCR than the other groups (graded groups).
