ABSTRACT: The final preferred temperature of Oreochromis mossambicus acclimated to freshwater was 32.2 C, which was significantly (P ≤ 0.05) lower than final preferred temperatures of fish acclimated at 15 o/oo and 30 o/oo salinity. The thermal tolerance zone of Oreochromis mossambicug ranged between 15–37 C and was not affected by acclimation to different salinity levels.
