Fresh Tilapia

Knowledge of tilapia’s attractive taste and health benefits stretch all the way back to the ancient Egyptians, who actually had a hieroglyph representing this important fish. They are native to the Nile and North Africa, but they have been extensively farmed throughout Asia as well, and are now a “global” species. Some countries consider them to be invasive species, as they are very  adaptive and can unbalance fragile ecosystems if they are accidentally introduced. There were more than 1.5 million tons of tilapia farmed and harvested in the US alone in 2005, and that number is expected to at least double by 2015.

That being said, understand where all of the bad press that this species of fish comes from.  Our research concluded, hands down, that this species of fish, when properly cultivated, can lead to food independence.  As was stated before, our business interests are "Secondary", to the overall goal of living Revelation 18:4.  Tilapia breed at a rate that fulfills this goal.
