Tilapia (/tɪˈlɑːpiə/ tih-LAH-pee-ə) is the common name for nearly a hundred species of cichlid fish from the tilapiine cichlid tribe. Tilapia are mainly freshwater fish inhabiting shallow streams, ponds, rivers, and lakes, and less commonly found living in brackish water. Historically, they have been of major importance in artisanal fishing in Africa, and they are of increasing importance in aquaculture and aquaponics. Northeastern Blue Tilapia™ are raised indoors and are a fast growing fish, which makes it a great aquaculture fish. It has a bad rap because of how it is raise in other country's and how they are fed. Tilapia are a vegetable eating fish, algae and roots are their main diet, If you were starved you would eat garbage and anything you could get your hands on. When they are fed the right diet and have clean water, they become the best tasting low cost fish there is. Tilapia were (and still are) famous for spawning in abundance. They were also the easiest fish to catch during biblical times as they required little equipment to catch as they stay relatively close to the surface of the water and swim close together. Locals didn’t have a means of preservation, so going from sea to plate was the only option. Since then, Tilapia’s ability to quickly mature and reproduce has allowed communities surrounding the Sea of Galilee, as well as other bodies of water around the world, to satiate their appetites for fish and healthy protein. Not only is it a fish that has sustained cultures for centuries, but it’s one that plays a large role in one of the monumental moments of Jesus Christ’s life. The nutritious fish was, and still is, enjoyed by those who follow Jesus and live by what he preached. Moreover, it’s a responsibly raised nutritious fish that can be enjoyed year round, especially during Lent.
