Tilapia belongs to the family ‘Cichlidae’ and is largely freshwater fish which dwells in shallow streams, ponds, rivers and lakes. Tilapia is one of the most consumed farmed fishes in the world. Historically, this versatile fish was of great importance in mainly African and the Middle Eastern regions. But now, it is consumed across the globe and gaining popularity in Asian and American countries. It is inexpensive and mild in taste which makes it a good substitute for expensive alternatives such as salmon.
The rapid expansion of aquaculture has catalysed the growth of the tilapia industry globally. Tilapia, being an ideal choice for fish farming, has now become the second most cultured species after carps. Since, it is omnivorous, hard and have good resistance to diseases, they are affordable and easy even for small farmers to grow. In addition to this, the growing health consciousness among people and demand for protein-rich diet also drive the demand for tilapia since it contains vitamin B, iron, vitamin D, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. Moreover, the improvements in genetic technology, selective breeding and increasing government initiatives to support aquaculture business are also stimulating the growth of the tilapia market.
