    Tilapia is actually the name for about a hundred species of fish under the cichlid tribe. Tilapia are generally freshwater fish and they can be found in rivers, streams, lakes, and estuaries. They are increasingly being farmed for commercial production due to their large size and rapid growth. Because they eat primarily a vegetarian diet, Tilapia also have low levels of mercury.
