Tilapia: A bit of background
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.
The Fish Company - Setting Farming Standards
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.
