Tilapia

Oreochromis nicolitus

The Nile tilapia is one of the most commonly farmed tilapia species in the world. It is a fast growing species that can live in many different types of waters, from lakes and rivers to sewage canals. It is highly adaptable and can make use of a wide range of different food sources (including plants), but feeds primarily on phytoplankton and benthic algae. Even though the Nile tilapia is considered a freshwater species it has shown a great tolerance towards salt and can live in brackish conditions.
