Why you need tilapia
Get ready folks. After more than 10 years of silence on the subject, were about to unload a big drum of industrial strength whoop-ass on all of the fish mongers out there. There are some darned good reasons why people have been farming tilapia for thousands of years and using them in aquaponics since the very beginning. We're going to teach you why and back it all up with verifiable science. This page will be up and ready for the spring 2022 growing season. Don't even consider wasting your money on other aquatic species (especially for aquaponics) until you've read this page. Spoiler alert: Those of you who stock your ponds and systems with pure strain tilapia will be glad that you did. Everyone else, not so much.
