The tilapia fish Sarotherodon mossambicus (Teleostei, Cichlidae) is an important protein source for Indonesians, is a strong competitor with some endemic species and .readily hybridizes with other tilapias. A base line assessment of the present genetic diversity of these populations in Indonesia was conducted to facilitate the management of this species. This study compared the effectiveness of the 3 techniques (morphometric, isozyme and RAPD) in revealing differences within and among 9 Javanese populations. The data were also used to estimate the rate of divergence among the populations.
Morphometric analysis showed significant size and shape differences among the populations. Isozyme and RAPD analysis also s howed significant population diffe rentiation (Gst= 0.067; x2= 30.15; pst= 0.217; x2= 38 .95 ; p
