Is There A Market For Tilapia Fish by greenhope(m): 8:17am On Jul 28, 2011
I just discovered that tilapia fish can now be raised in commercial quantity with a new breakthrough in its hatching which produces only male fish. In the past the problem has been that they are prolific in birth giving which leads to overcrowding and stout growth but with this invention Tilapia fish also know as Aqua Chicken can now be raised in commercial quantity.

My question is, is there a market for it in commercial quantity since it does not stay alive longer outside water like catfish?

Thanks for everybody that said I should get the fish well dried for export market which is a very good idea. I will start looking for a smoking cane that can serve both tilipia and catfish but if anybody here has a contact or buyer abroad pls let me know.

Tilapia is my favorite fish here in Ghana,infact,whille catfish is popular in Nigeria it is Tilapia in Ghana.Majority of them were being caught from Volta River, hence the name VOLTA CATCH. There is a very wide portion of the Volta River that looks like a pond most especially in Kpong axis.Now to how it is being market, the big wigs harvest and store in a coldroom where the market women come in there numbers to buy and they do there preservation with the help of broken ice blocks stock together with the fish in a sack,getting to market they sell all day, the left over can then be further preserve buy drying or smoking but pretty sure they will made there gain from the sale.Some market women go to the river directly and straight to the market in that way they make more
gain.Aside that Tilapia is very popular in all the restaurants and and Hotels where they sell at exhorbitant rates.

If you flood the Nigerian market with tilapia, trust me people will buy it. Nigerians love tilapia and cat fish, and I don't think you can go wrong with tilapia.
