Tilapia is a species of freshwater, plant-eating fish, and chances are you ate it last year. It’s the fourth most consumed fish in the United States, after tuna, salmon, and Alaskan pollock. Tilapia is an inexpensive, mild white fish that’s easy to prepare and cook, making it an appealing dinner choice. But beyond taste, it’s the farming practices that have caused tilapia to explode in popularity. Nicknamed the “aqua-chicken”, tilapia can be produced on a mass scale, allowing the fish to be widely available at a high quality and an affordable price.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists tilapia as one of the best choices for pregnant or breast-feeding women and children over the age of 2 years. This is due to its low mercury and contaminant content.
Tilapia from COLOMBIA & COSTA ROCA is one of the best tilapia stock in the world.
Tilapia grow best in nutrient-rich ponds — the cleaner the pond, the more delicious the fish. By raising the fish in pristine rainforest-fed ponds, products have a clean, mild flavor and thick meaty texture. Pure, rainforest water allows raising pure, delicious tilapia.
TROPICAL FOREST’s immaculate natural environment combined with Oreochromis Niloticus, their choice Tilapia breed, creates a mild, pure flavor and thick, hearty fillets that stand fins and tails above the rest. Before each pond harvest, the fish are analyzed and taste-tested to assure the characteristic flavor clarity that makes Rainforest tilapia so exemplary, and thanks to our Genetic Improvement Program, only the best broodstock of Oreochromis are selected from each generation to breed, meaning the highest quality fish.
