The Truth About Tilapia:
Concerns are growing on the safety of eating Tilapia. While this mild fish ranks high in the Seafood Markets it’s popularity is slowly weakening due to rumors and reports of health concerns from poor farmed raising habitats. The scary part is usually you will find the good, bad and ugly about any products you buy, but this is one instance where reports swirling around the internet and news of poor feeding and possible feces getting into the waters polluting Tilapias habitat cannot be totally confirmed or denied. My suggestion is if you’re apprehensive about eating it, Don’t! Red Snapper, Bass, Flounder, Sole, Orange Roughy and Ocean Perch all make excellent substitutions for your favorite Tilapia recipes.
