TILAPIA

Eagle’s Catch produces high-quality, identity-preserved tilapia sold to distributors and retail establishments. Production begins with the purchase of fry from a known source.

At a time when demand is growing, Eagle’s Catch is offering a highly desired product. Tilapia is suitable for many recipes, has a very mild flavor, and is easy to prepare. Currently, more than 90 percent of tilapia sold in the US is imported from large production operations in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Honduras, Ecuador, Columbia, and Mexico.

Imported tilapia are either frozen whole or fileted and frozen. Concerns over the quality of imported fish, due to fish farming practices outside the US, have made the market for high quality, American tilapia strong. Well-managed aquaculture systems in the US providing fish raised in a clean environment without antibiotics and growth hormones, sold in closer proximity to where they are raised, enjoy incredible potential.

Over-fishing in oceans is depleting natural fish stocks, creating concerns over sustainability. In addition, the amount of pollution and accumulated trash in the ocean is affecting the quality of the seafood there. Eagle’s Catch offsets both of these issues by meeting increasing demand for high quality tilapia produced in a closed, sustainable, and clean manner.
