Other Names: St Peter's fish

 

Tilapia are a hardy, aggressive freshwater fish originally native to Africa that reproduces quickly and eats a grain-based vegetarian diet. This fish grows fast and can reach a size for harvesting within eight to 10 months. Tilapia is a white fish with a bland flavor that makes it a good substitute for other white fish, including snapper, grouper, flounder, and rockfish.
