Fresh Red Tilapia Fish are mainly freshwater fish inhabiting shallow streams, ponds, rivers, and lakes, and less commonly found living in brackish water. Historically, they have been of major importance in artisanal fishing in Africa, and they are of increasing importance in aquaculture and aquaponics. Tilapia can become a problematic invasive species in new warm-water habitats such as Australia, whether deliberately or accidentally introduced, but generally not in temperate climates due to their inability to survive in cold water.
Fresh Red Tilapia Fish can tolerate high salinity and it can be grown in sea water also. Farmers should evaluate environmental conditions, culture system and markets to select red tilapia for culture.
