I watch my fish consumption closely because high omega-6 Talapia is often substituted and high levels of omega-6 is bad for your health.
Most Talapia is grown in 'poo-poo' ponds in Asia. I read where one farmer fed his fish only feces from pigs.

Doesn't matter what the fish are eating. Its the post mortem handling that makes the wholesomeness questionable. I remember recovering bodies from pilots that had crashed in Mobile Bay and their entire faces were removed by the crabs. Lucky for me, I can't eat shellfish. I'm sure there are many that enjoy crabmeat from the Alabama Gulf Coast.
That’s because most New Yorkers have never bothered to go fishing. But they are so much smarter than us hayseeds from the south!

The fact that Chilean Sea Bass (a very large saltwater fish) and Striped Bass (commonly caught in a freshwater pond near you) could be mistaken for one another points to the heart of the problem.
Kitchen staff illiteracy.
Tilapia don’t eat the “Poo”. Animal manure fertilizes the algae, duckweed and other plants in the pond, the tilapia eat the algae & plants.
Central American tilapia producers use a feed made from about 90% grain and the remainder in fish meal.

Not being sarcastic here - I really do want your opinion. Would you be more inclined to purchase Talapia grown in the US with a 100% organic certification from the USDA over Talapia of unknown origin? If so, would you be willing to pay more and what percentage more?
I ask because I am looking into a business plan for raising Talapia in a fish farm here in the US.
No problem in Louisiana. Most the fish we eat here in restaurants were swimming either this morning or yesterday. At home I’ve caught everything I eat. (fish)

Hey, I would take Yellowtail over Mai Mai any day of the week! Yellowtail snapper is the sweetest tasting fish in the sea. Whenever I am in Fla. or the Keys I look for it and it’s hard to find at times.
