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.

I know a local restaurant that has gone the extra mile to secure US fish and make it clear to the customers. He made appropriate pricing modifications (including offering half price fish tacos only on Monday and during Lent rather than continually on Fridays as well).

It is an upscale market (but not an upscale restaurant, just the clientele)

Your millage may vary.

I also don't like living in a city dominated by Fertitta owned seafood restaurants that don't even use local sea food in the coast locations. I make the effort to go elsewhere.

There’s a forum I used to belong to that had a lot of information about aquaponics, and tilapia was one of the most popular fish to raise. The forum is at http://www.backyardaquaponics.com/forum/

You can find all sorts of info there, from tabletop systems up to commercial-scale fish farms.
(I only stopped going there because I was in so many forums I couldn’t keep up with them all. It was one of many that I culled from my list, but it’s still a good forum.)
