One of several species of fish of genus Oreochromis or Tilapia, native to Africa, now surpassing trout in total volume sold worldwide. Aquaculture of this fish is rampant. They will eat a variety of food sources, from insects to rice paddy chaff. They tolerate a wide range of salinities, reproduce many times a year, and they tolerate tight growing conditions. If large fish are desired, overgrowth must be controlled. Tilapia will outflourish the available food and oxygen, and thus limit fish size.

They taste like flounder.
