Tilapia (Oreochromis spp.) Reports and Resources

Tilapia is one of the world's oldest delicacies. It can be traced back over 4,500 years through hieroglyphs and carvings depicting this small fish that indicate it was the food of Egyptian Kings and Pharaohs. Native to the Nile River, Tilapia spread to the fresh waters of Africa and Asia and has been eaten for millennia-and farmed since 2,500 BC. Tilapia has had many names-- including St. Peter's Fish. It has been called St. Peter's fish since Biblical times because it is believed to be not only the fish that Peter caught, but the fish with which Jesus fed the multitudes in the famous parable.

---------------
