Fish Tacos

Tilapia in the future... As the wild fish populations in our oceans are facing problems with over fishing, more and more consumers are looking for alternatives to endangered species like cod. Tilapia could play an important role here, since it can be farmed instead of caught from the wild. Several projects have also been launched where destitute families around the world are encouraged to farm tilapias in their own backyard to feed themselves and possibly sell surplus fish at local markets. In Latin America, larger commercial farms exporting fresh tilapia to the U.S. market have provided job opportunities for the local population. Tilapia farms exporting frozen tilapia are also an important source of income for many countries in South East Asia.  Tilapia farms can be a way for tropical countries to take advantage of their warm climate, since tilapia can be grown year round as long as the water temperature is high enough.
