.. From pharaonic times to the present the Nile Tilapia has been the foundation of widespread aquaculture. The other North African species, (Mozambique and Blue,) have recently been added to the genetic stew of fish farming around the world. There is even a Rocky Mountain Tilapia, (Nile tilapia + blue tilapia hybrid,) that tolerates cooler water temperatures than the original tropical species. The free hybridization among the various species and hybrids has produced fish adapted to a wide range of conditions.
.. There are tilapia in the Salton Sea of California that thrive in salinity that would kill pelagic fish of the oceans. The hybrids are fast growing, eat mostly anything, are easy to catch and have been subjected to sex change tactics to enhance size and reduce unwanted female fish.
.. Eating a farm raised tilapia is worse for your health than eating bacon -- for those that care. Methyltestosterone is widely used as is a whole suite of antibiotics designed to keep the fish alive in their toxic environments. The possibility of salmonella strains resistant to antibiotics is looming on the horizon.
.. Contemporary efforts in the United States, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Canada are pushing the limits of "clean" fish farming of tilapia. With, of course, governmental support. Perhaps tilapia is the fish of the future.
.. Feedlot cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, etc. are the mainstay of the American diet. They are full of both good and bad things. The detriments are forgotten because a rib eye steak in no way resembles a cow rolling around in it's own feces. Pork shoulder and ham steaks look far more appetizing than some swine wallowing in their own muck. We love it and we eat it.
.. On the other hand, we certainly wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole the
