Tilapia biologist wins World Food Prize - June 2005

    Welcome to the World Wide Web site for information regarding Tilapia Aquaculture. This Web page provides access to information about the fish which is the fastest growing aquaculture crop in the United States and around the world. We are pleased to provide this information to those already producing tilapia for the food industry, for those interested in joining the industry and to potential customers and consumers of farm-raised tilapia.

    Tilapia, several species and their hybrids of Oreochromis, are the second most important group of farm raised fish in the world. Tilapia farming and consumption are rapidly increasing in the US. Tilapia is now the fourth most popular seafood consumed in the United States.  We are dedicated to the development of a profitable and sustainable industry.  We are scientists who wish to protect the aquatic environment while providing high quality fresh fish to the American consumer.

OVERVIEW    Our goals are in education and support for research.
