	%X This paper analyses the effect of fertilizer (organic and
inorganic) in the growth of tilapia. An experiment was implemented
in the Aquapesca Company of Mozambique; there were considered
four different treatments. Each type of fertilizer was applied in two of
these treatments; a feed was supplied to the third treatment, and the
fourth was taken as control. The weight and length of the tilapia were
used as the growth parameters, and to measure the water quality, the
physical-chemical parameters were registered. The results show that
the weight and length were different for tilapias cultivated in different
treatments. These differences were evidenced mainly by organic and
feed treatments, where there was the largest and smallest value of
these parameters, respectively. In order to prove that these differences
were caused only by applied treatment without interference for the
aquatic environment, a Fisher discriminant analysis was applied,
which confirmed that the treatments were exposed to the same
environment condition.
