Tilapia For Aquaponic

Fish such as Tilapia and are raised in a large tank of water. I'm gonna use Tilapia in my aquaponics systems because they are relatively easy to raise and because you can market them to restaurants, market basket customers, and they are a favorite in ethnic markets.

Originally found in Africa, Tilapia has been farmed for more than 2,500 years. Tilapia is a perfect fish for aquaponics because of its rapid growth, large size, and because it tastes great too. This hardy fish can adapt to most any condition with the exception of water temperature. Tilapia prefer warm water - at least 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It takes about 9 months for Tilapia to grow to a harvestable size, about 1.5 pounds but I usually harvest them at the age of 3 months.

What does Tilapia eat? Well, you can feed your tilapia fish feeds such as Starter for fish fry up to 1 month of age, Grower at 2 months and Finisher at 3 months old. However, my Tilapia love to eat algae from the side of the tank.
