Blue Tilapia Fingerlings

Blue Tilapia are considered to be a very good all purpose tilapia. They grow fast (second only to Niles), produce excellent tasting fillets and are known to tolerate colder water temperatures than many other tilapia strains. They are often selected by those who live in cooler climates, due to their ability to tolerate short periods of extremely low water temperatures as adults (down to 45 degrees F).

Blue Tilapia (Oreochromis Aureus)

Blue Tilapia are considered to be a very good all purpose tilapia. They grow fast (second only to Niles), produce excellent tasting fillets and are known to tolerate colder water temperatures than many other tilapia strains. They are often selected by those who live in cooler climates, due to their ability to tolerate short periods of extremely low water temperatures as adults (down to 45 degrees F).

Blue tilapia are omnivores but have a strong herbivorous tendency, preferring aquatic plants and algae when readily available. Because of this trait, Blue Tilapia are often a top choice for those wishing to stock tilapia in earth basin ponds, in states/areas they are allowed. They are highly effective at controlling nuisance aquatic plants, and due to their extremely high fecundity (reproduction rate), also provide exceptional forage for predator fish like largemouth bass when stocked in fishing ponds. Many pond owners seeking to produce trophy bass stock blue tilapia annually as part of their trophy bass management plan. Blue Tilapia are also an excellent selection for aquaponics and backyard aquaculture systems. They are a very forgiving fish when it comes to less than ideal water quality parameters and temperature extremes.

Our Blue Tilapia are GMO and hormone FREE. We ship mixed sex fish, so you will get a roughly 50/50 mix of males and females.

Reviews

Fish received healthy, growing well, highly recommendReview by Lori

I ordered my fish Nov 6th, received as promised Nov. 8th. Temperature of water in the bag at the time of arrival was sixty degrees, but the fish didn't seem affected. I received 37 fish, which I greatly appreciate, for my order of 25. The fish acclimated easily. Over the last 3 months I have lost 4, each on separate occasions for different reasons, my fault, not the fish's I'm sure. The remaining 33 are healthy, hardy, and thriving, in spite of this being my first experience with tilapia, and having to survive through my mistakes and learning curve. The fish are measuring between 1 1/2" to 4" at this time. The plan is for these fish are going to join my aquaponics system this coming spring. I'm in Washington State, so I'll have to supply heat to their water. These fish are lots of fun. I highly recommend. (Posted on 2/9/14)
