    Abstract

    Tilapia is one of the fastest growing aquaculture species in the world. This is due to the low cost to produce this fish in all continents using a variety of production methods. Furthermore, tilapia is increasingly demanded in world wide markets ranging from the poorest segments in developing countries to highly developed western markets. Yet the fast development in the tilapia industry has resulted in a relatively small number of studies compared to other aquaculture industries like salmon or shrimp. This report reviews the development of tilapia aquaculture production and markets and provides a brief discussion on its likely developments in the future.
