We offer Pure Blue Tilapia, which is the best variety of tilapia for the home aquaponic gardener!
Pure Blue Tilapia (Oreochromis aureus) are a freshwater fish with a high tolerance for brackish and colder water than any other tilapia species. They reach plate size (12" and 1 1/2 lbs) in about 9 - 12 months, although the adults can grow to 15 to 18 inches in length and weigh 5 to 6 pounds. Tilapia are mouthbrooders, and broods range from 160 to 1600 eggs per female.
Our Tilapia fingerlings range in size from .5-1.5 inches and average about 1 inch.
