It all started with a passion for aquaponics, and the construction of a large greenhouse. I added blue tilapia to the system and they began to multiply.
Tilapia are especially good in aquaponic systems. Aquaponics refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. Many varieties of fruits and vegetables can be grown this way.
Tilapia can also be a great addition to any pond. They are vivacious eaters , feeding primarily on aquatic vegetation such as duckweed.
