    Tilapia farms and a reminder why we get fat!

    Shop Now
    There's plenty of info in this article on tilapia farming, but in the third or fourth paragraph a very good reminder of why so many people are getting fat on our versions of the pellets.

    I'm glad I don't like tilapia. I like my fish to taste like fish.

    Thanks for the post Digby. I've been eating that stuff, on occasion. I'll cross it off the list.

    Ugh, I bought a whole lot of it--hubby loves it, but I will be tossing it out.

    I don't like tilapia, flounder, or catfish--most common in supermarkets, but occasionally eat farmed salmon.

    I'm not too keen on tilapia - it's just too bland and mushy. While I don't think they're particularly healthy, I do see some utility in using them in aquaponic systems (which are pretty damn neat).

    On the other hand, I love catfish, but I haven't seen the wild stuff around here lately. The farm-raised fish just don't have the same flavor.
