This fresh water delicacy is being farmed intensively across the Middle East, over Africa and in South and Central America.
In the Middle East the fish are being farmed mainly in land based fish farms.
In Africa Tilapia is being farmed in net pens in some of the big lakes across the African continent.
Also in South America Tilapia is being farmed in lakes – and as an example it is typical to place Tilapia farms in the hydro lakes formed behind dams in Brazil.
Tilapia can be seen biting and chewing on net, twine and rope and therefore it is important to take care when designing the net pens.
Net pens for tilapia farming in lakes are often set up in combination with an outer predator net.
Tiger fish in Africa and Piranhas in South America are just some of the predator fish that can attack net pens with tilapia.
From with the net pens – the materials are being attacked. As tilapia bite and chew on the net it is important to make sure that there are no lose twine or rope ends inside the net pen that the tilapia can catch.
