Welcome to the World Wide Web site for information
regarding Tilapia. 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 one of the major groups of farm raised fish in
the world. Tilapia farming and consumption are rapidly increasing in the
US. In fact, in 1995 and 1996, retail sales of tilapia surpassed those
of trout. The University of Arizona is dedicated to the development of a profitable
and sustainable industry. Our member producers and scientists wish
to protect the aquatic environment while providing high quality fresh fish
to the American consumer.
OVERVIEW The objective of the University of Arizona tilapia program is to support and facilitate the growth of Tilapia production
and consumption within the United States,
with goals in education, government
interactions and support for research.
The University of Arizona sponsors or co-sponsors major international scientific and industry
meetings each year.
ISTA IV The American
Tilapia Association sponsored the Fourth International Symposium for Tilapia
in Aquaculture (ISTA 4) Nov. 9-12, 1997 in Orlando, Florida. The
meeting was co-sponsored by the International Center for Living Aquatic
Resource Management (ICLARM) the Aquaculture Engineering Society and
will be hosted by the Florida Aquaculture Association. The Associate
Sponsors are the Pond Dynamics/Aquaculture CRSP, the Israeli Fish Farmers
Association, the US Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society, CIRAD-EMVT,
and the Department of Fisheries of Mexico (SEMARNAP). The Proceedings are
available from the Home Office for $50.
