Raising Tilapia in Your Own Background
The tilapia fish species is a native of Africa and was introduced in many other countries.
Tilapia is now widely distributed around the world. It has become the mainstay of many small-scale
aquaculture projects in many developing countries, including the Pacific region. Tilapia is a good
quality food and has a firm and delicious flesh. It is also suitable for processing into dried, salted
dried, smoked or pickled products. This guide briefly describes how to raise tilapia at your own
backyard using 200-liter plastic drums. Other containers found in the house such as old refrigerators,
fiberglass tanks or even large washing dishes can also be used.
