Tilapia is known as one of the favourite aquaponics fish for few good reasons.
They reproduce and grow fast
Have good temperament
High tolerance to variable water quality
Not fussy about the quality of feed
The above make Tilapia one of the best choices for beginner aquaponics farmers.
Interesting fact though, it is also because of the same reasons that Tilapia are listed in the top 100 of the world’s worst introduced species in nature.
