Description

Tilapia is an inexpensive freshwater fish with a mild flavour and a firm and flaky texture. Oreochromise Niloticus is a specie commonly known as Nile Tilapia. It is a cichlid fish native to the northern half of Africa and Israel. It reached up to 60cm in length and can be as large as 5kg.

The Nile Tilapia was a well known fish in Ancient Egypt and was often featured in their art. A 4000 year old illustration on an old tomb in Egypt shows Nile Tilapia in man made ponds, indicating that they had invented aqua cultural farms for Tilapia already back then.  

Tilapia has become the second most farmed fish in the world (Behind Carp), and is reported to be farmed in over 135 countries around the world. It is ideal for farming as is enjoys being close to eachother which allows for a high density production without a loss in quality (As opposed prawns for example as it needs more “personal space”. Furthermore, Tilapia consumes a vegetarian diet and grows extremely fast.

We get our Tilapia from Polydor Seafoods Ltd in Billingsgate Fishmarket. Polydor has been sourcing their Tilapia from the same supplier in China for 15 years. The product is of high quality and is often found defrosted and sold in fismongers across London.
