Tilapia has been farmed all over the world for centuries – as far back as ancient Egypt. In fact, many believe tilapia is the fish Jesus used to feed the 5,000. Tilapia is one of the top five most popular fish in the USA, and is now growing in popularity here too.
At The Fish Company we're proud to be setting the standards for aquaculture. Our tilapia is farmed to the highest environmental standards and fed on 100% sustainable GM-free feed. That's one of the reasons why tilapia farmed in closed-recirculation systems is rated No 1 by the Marine Conservation Society – that's the highest rating in their Good Fish Guide.
The Fish Company is the first company to farm British Tilapia commercially in the UK.
Our fresh British tilapia is available all year round and is never frozen. You can find it in supermarkets such as Tesco and Booths, as well as through fishmongers such as James Knight and Selfridges. Tilapia is also becoming increasingly popular with chefs, who are seeking sustainable fish for their menus, so be sure to look out for it on the menu at your favourite restaurant.
