A farmed fish that tastes like wild fish
«Tilapia is a mild-tasting, versatile fish that allows you to easily create a variety of enjoyable fish dishes. I particularly like fresh tilapia from Tilabras – you can taste the difference.»
Amon Samuel de Assis, Chef Taj Restaurant & Hotel, Três Lagoas (BR)
TILAPIA IS A GREAT ALTERNATIVE FOR WILD FISH
Health experts recommend at least two servings of fish a week. If we would rely on wild fish alone, we would require four planet earths. Aquaculture is ideal to make up the volume that wild catch cannot provide.
In this context, tilapia aquaculture is six times more efficient at converting plant-based feed into animal proteins than cattle farming. And with its small environmental footprint, tilapia is a highly sustainable substitute for most popular wild fish like salmon.
TILAPIA IS A HEALTHY CHOICE
Tilapia is one of the best sources of healthy protein. Additionally, tilapia has about as much omega-3 as other popular seafood like cod fish and yellowfin tuna, and more fatty acids than chicken or other meat.
It is also full of vitamin B12 and provides high-quality protein with no carbohydrates. Tilapia is, therefore, a healthy choice for consumers and forms an excellent part of a balanced diet.
TILAPIA IS A MILD-TASTING FISH
Whether sautéed, baked, boiled or fried – the versatility of tilapia allows you to create a wide variety of delicious fish dishes. Mild tasting, with a firm texture, everyone from the most discerning chefs to the youngest child appreciates this delightful fish.
