Saw a “Dirty Jobs” episode once with Mike Rowe that showed how Tilapia were “Farm raised” - disgusting! They eat they’re own excrement in filthy cement ponds.
I’ll NEVER eat one in a Restaurant after watching that show!
Hopefully the Wild fish taste better, but I’ll still pass!

Yeah, the first I ever heard of a tilapia was in a sci-fi novel I reading the 70's...an apocalyptic tale involving voracious man-eater hybrids (bred with piranha? can't recall..)....been wary of those fish ever since and I have seen that show, myself.
'Bout the same filth as the Iowa Beef Packers plant in Emporia, KS that I had a very short stint at, back in the summer of 1969...... I was on the cleaning crew.... you start in the "killing room".....worst job I ever had.... period....and I once worked as a "Pest Controller", the exterminator guy ( gross and kinda dirty, but at least I didn't want to throw up during the whole shift !)

While in the Navy stationed on Oahu, I went fishing on the only fresh water lake on the island. The Talipa was schooled up so thick I think you could walk on them without sinking. I started catching them with nothing but a bare hook. I was putting them in a 5 gallon bucket. After putting 4-5 in the bucket, the water turned a nasty putrid green color. I dumped them damn nasty fish back and never tried to catch another one.

When I see them on the menu in restaurants it brings back what they looked like in that bucket! Ain’t no way I’m eating one of those trash fish no matter how good they might taste!

I'm with ya Mick. I saw the same episode. Haven't eaten it since. We used to raise hogs in Indiana and it's amazing what they'll eat, but at least they don't eat their own crap.

Those Tilapia have a crappy diet and a crappy appetite. I have been told they also school up right where sewage is pumped into rivers. They are just used to it so they never go hunt good food. Pretty gross.

Aren’t Tilapia vegetarians? That might explain why the water turned green when you had them in your bucket.

Tilapia is an inexpensive, mild-flavored fish. It is the fourth most commonly consumed type of seafood in the United States.
Many people love tilapia because it is relatively affordable and doesn’t taste very fishy.
However, scientific studies have highlighted concerns about tilapia’s fat content. Several reports also raise questions surrounding tilapia farming practices.
As a result, many people claim that you should avoid this fish altogether and that it may even be harmful to your health.
This article examines the evidence and reviews the benefits and dangers of eating tilapia.

What Is Tilapia?


The name tilapia actually refers to several species of mostly freshwater fish that belong to the cichlid family.
Although wild tilapia are native to Africa, the fish has been introduced throughout the world and is now farmed in over 135 countries.
It is an ideal fish for farming because it doesn’t mind being crowded, grows quickly and consumes a cheap vegetarian diet. These qualities translate to a relatively inexpensive product compared to other types of seafood.
The benefits and dangers of tilapia depend largely on differences in farming practices, which vary by location.
China is by far the world’s largest producer of tilapia. They produce over 1.6 million metric tons annually and provide the majority of the United States’ tilapia imports

I get a chuckle out of these squeamish outdoorsmen who won't eat fish that consume shit but have no problem eating vegetables which are fertilized with shit. In fact, they prefer those vegetables because they're 'natural' and 'organically grown'!
Go figure.

I saw a video on talapia farming in China. They had chicken coops built over the talapia ponds. Chickens poop and talapia get fed.
I’ve never eaten talapia and don’t ever expect to.
