The tilapia farming experts
Hello and welcome to Lakeway Tilapia. Serving the needs of both commercial and residential tilapia farming, including aquaculture and aquaponics.
We created this site to educate our customers and help them cut through all of the Internet nonsense surrounding tilapia farming. Our support of the do-it-yourself tilapia farmer mandates that everything we write has to be accurate. One carelessly quoted fact, and the whole site can be called into question. Today, in 2016, we present you with the most up to date, continually evolving, website for tilapia farming and aquaponics. It doesn't matter whether your plans are to start a commercial aquaculture facility, a home aquaponic garden, or your very own restaurant serving up tilapia tacos and nuggets, we will empower you with the knowledge and confidence that you need to be successful.
The truth is, all tilapia farming, including keeping tilapia in aquaponic systems, requires knowledge. A tilapia needs five basic things to thrive: clean water, oxygen, food, light and room to swim. Of course, the devil is in the details, and the quest for specifics often leaves the new tilapia farmer open to bias and conjecture. As in any booming industry, there are a lot of peddlers willing to stretch the truth in an effort to extract money from inexperienced or uncertain customers. Tilapia fingerling resellers who choose to ignore inconvenient facts because they don't favor a sale, and aquaponics system dealers who provide "educational" information and workshops for the products that they sell, disregarding alternative methods and selling their own accidentally bred fingerlings as a sideline, are the primary sources of misleading information.
At Lakeway Tilapia, our knowledge comes from experience. Because every tilapia farming operation is unique, and the technology used is constantly evolving, we design and discover new things all the time. Combined with the fact that we have been raising and breeding fish for nearly 30 years, we can say with some measure of confidence, that when it comes to keeping tilapia healthy and growing fast, we are the tilapia farming experts.
So hopefully you've come to our site looking for some plain talk about tilapia farming. We're not here to turn you into a geneticist, or fill your head with unnecessary science. In fact, most of the words on this site are based on the actual face-to-face and telephone conversations that we have with our customers every day. Of course, there are a few of our own opinions tucked here and there, but none of them are baseless. So give us your time, and we promise not to waste it with the same old cut-and-paste plagiarism, erroneous nonsense, and hidden sales pitches found everywhere else.
We look forward to helping you succeed!
