TASTE AND NUTRITION
Tilapia are flaky and mild-tasting. They are lean fish that have lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids than fattier fish species.
HOW THEY ARE RAISED
Because tilapia prefer tropical temperatures, they are raised indoors in Wisconsin. Most are raised in recirculating tanks, and some are used in aquaponic systems. Tilapia are omnivorous fish, so they do not require feed made from wild fish.
Some biblical scholars suggest tilapia was the fish used by Jesus to feed the crowds at the Sea of Galilee.
