    Default Tilapia ain’t half bad…


    Catch, clean and cook video. Tilapia caught while crappie fishing.



    Crappie still taste better, but I have to admit, the Tilapia was good. I was pleasantly surprised.

    The wild caught also supply the good Omega 3’s, unlike store bought, farm raised Talapia that are often loaded with the harmful Omega 6. We’ve enjoyed them for years. Good bow fishing targets.
    Pass the "Sportsman Baton" on before you're gone, promote values for others to hunt and fish upon.

    Yeah we like tilapia too but it (farm raised) isn’t supposed to be that good for you so we stopped eating them.

    I see them in the grocery stores all the time (likely farm raised). Also have eaten them at Chinese Buffets, but didn't care for them on account of so many bones. They were probably the farm raised version, as well. Not much taste to them and they're not seasoned, either, so I just choose the Salmon instead. I'll stick to Crappie & Catfish for my catch & eat fare.

    The Lake behind my house is loaded with Tilapia. I never tried to catch any. Think I will try as soon as we get a little rain to cool things down. Thanks for the great video.

    I avoid them cause they eat poop. And we are what we eat.

    They fight like they’re turbo charged and don’t tire easily. I wrestled with a few last year and they’re extra tough. Their meat is high in omega 7’s which aren’t good for us. Omega 3’s are the ones we need. I won’t repeat the stories of farm raised but I’ll never eat them.

    Blue tilapia is found in Florida’s lakes, rivers and streams. Unlike other varieties, it can live both in saltwater and freshwater. However, because it doesn’t grow as quickly as Nile varieties, it’s not as commonly farmed.


    Because of the concerning farming practices involving tilapia in China, it is best to avoid tilapia from China and look for tilapia from other parts of the world.
    When shopping for farmed tilapia, the best sources include fish from the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Ecuador or Peru (14).
    Ideally, wild-caught tilapia are preferable to farmed .


    Additionally, these fish are easier to find wild-caught, which will help avoid some of the banned chemicals used in some tilapia farming.
    SUMMARYIf consuming tilapia, it is best to limit your consumption of fish farmed in China.


    It’s an excellent source of protein and nutrients


    Tilapia is a pretty impressive source of protein. In 3.5 ounces (100 grams), it packs 26 grams of protein and only 128 calories (3).
    Even more impressive is the amount of vitamins and minerals in this fish. Tilapia is rich in niacin, vitamin B12, phosphorus, selenium and potassium.
    A 3.5-ounce serving contains the following (3):

    • Calories: 128
    • Carbs: 0 grams
    • Protein: 26 grams
    • Fats: 3 grams
    • Niacin: 24% of the RDI
    • Vitamin B12: 31% of the RDI
    • Phosphorus: 20% of the RDI
    • Selenium: 78% of the RDI
    • Potassium: 20% of the RDI

    Tilapia is also a lean source of protein, with only 3 grams of fat per serving.


    Pass the "Sportsman Baton" on before you're gone, promote values for others to hunt and fish upon.
