To improve its strain, the International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), which was formed in the Philippines in 1987, established partnership with other agencies like NFFTC and started developing the Genetically Improved Farm Tilapia (GIFT).
These were kept at the NFFTC quarantine facilities and became the stock for the crossbreeding or hybridization project.
After GIFT, NFFTC produced the GET-Excel (acronym for excellent genetically enhanced tilapia) strain that has become the core of the Philippine tilapia breeding program.
