Fish Facts

  • Legend says that Tilapia was the fish Christ multiplied a thousand-fold to feed the masses.
  • Robust fish that grows very quickly and can be fed an inexpensive plant-based diet, thereby eliminating the need for feed made with ocean fish.
  • Tilapia is a lean, white fish that takes on the flavors of whatever you cook with it. It can be baked, grilled, fried, broiled, saut»ed, poached, blackened, stir-fried, or even microwaved; good alternative to cod, sea bass, sole, snapper, pompano, flounder and orange roughy.
