Summary Fourteen microsatellite loci were used to examine genetic changes of four strains in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) derived from genetically improved farmed tilapia (GIFT) and two strains derived from a local Chitralada strain of Nile tilapia in Thailand. Reference populations, including the ninth generation of GIFT strain, the original Chitralada strain, two conspecific reference populations from Ivory Coast and Uganda, and one population each of Oreochromis mossambicus and Oreochromis aureus, were also examined. Despite minor genetic changes, three of the four GIFT-derived populations retained their purity as GIFT while genetic variation did not decline. One of the GIFT-derived populations showed high levels of introgression from the Chitralada strain. Likewise, introgression from GIFT to the Chitralada-derived populations was seen. Inter-specific introgression from O. mossambicus was observed in the GIFT reference population and one of the Chitralada-derived strains. Introgression from O. aureus was detected in one of the GIFT-derived populations with a history of intensive inter-strain crossing. However, the introgression resulted in elevated genetic variation relative to the Chitralada original strains.
