The latest Dietary Guidelines in First World Countries recommends eating at least two servings of a variety of seafood each week to boost heart and brain health and maintain a healthy weight. Among the top most consumed fish, tilapia is the fourth most consumed seafood in the United States.

Although there are many different fish choices that can effortlessly add up to two servings each week, tilapia is definitely under the favourites. The vast majority of tilapia eaten in South Africa today come from farms that adhere to rigorous requirements that take into account food safety, environment and community issues, feed, the use of veterinary drugs, traceability, and more.

Tilapia farms and processing facilities in South Africa are inspected routinely to ensure they meet these requirements and are committed to the health of the fish they raise, the consumers who eat them, and the environment.
