Who is raising Tilapia fish

Recommended Posts

A few years ago some gringos helped a group of village women east of Chapala start raising Tilapia. They were raising them in tanks to supplement the village families income.  Did this endevor survive and does it continue. Anyone know where the Mexico raised Tilapia can be purchased. We checked the frozen filets and they were from China.  There also used to be a frog farm near Chapala but they don't seem to have survived.

I NEVER eat tilapia...it is about garbage to me!  I'm like Bridgette...farmed fish are not really good for you.

The IB school on the Libramiento was raising fish when they first opened years ago; I don't know if they still do. It was a very impressive tank system that many of us toured and, at least at that time, on Fridays you could go and purchase the fish (for consumption) that had grown to a designated weight. They'd be a resource for you.
