Tilapia is a type of fish mainly found in fresh and brackish water. This type of fish is becoming an increasingly popular culinary feature in many hotels and restaurants. Tilapias are known for their white and delicious flesh. They are known to be natives of Africa and the Middle East but have been introduced into several places outside their natural habitat including a number of states in the U.S with warm waters. Tilapias are classified as herbivores. It can be quite difficult to learn how to catch tilapia because they are rather shy. Catching them will require your best angling skills.
