Welcome to the World Wide Web site for information regarding the American Tilapia Association. This Web page provides access to information about the fish which is the fastest growing aquaculture crop in the United States and around the world. We are pleased to provide this information to those already producing tilapia for the food industry, for those interested in joining the industry and to potential customers and consumers of farm-raised tilapia.

Freshwater Shrimp Farming with Miami Aqua-culture, Inc.
If you want to raise shrimp, but only have freshwater available, we can make some suggestions. We offer several types of freshwater shrimp, crayfish or "langostinos". However, most of them do not like to be crowded. Final grow-out densities are usually 1 to 10 per square meter of pond. Under some conditions, certain species of marine shrimp can be acclimated to freshwater and be raised at much higher densities (150 / sq. meter).

Production of freshwater prawns in Mississippi was first evaluated in 1984, and research to date has proven that this could be a profitable enterprise in Mississippi. For several years, MSU has conducted on-farm demonstration projects to verify research results, and these have typically successful.

The source for information on aquaponics, hydroponics and aquaculture.
Aquaponics is the combination of intensive aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil). In an aquaponic system, the fish consume food and excrete waste. Beneficial bacteria convert the waste to nitrate which the plants use in the growth process.

How to Grow Spirulina

One of the most frustrating management challenges facing many farm pond owners is dealing with a population of stunted bream too small to be desirable to fishermen. This is common in bass/bream ponds, due to several factors not always under the manager's control. Bream are prolific, and their reproduction often exceeds the harvest and natural mortality, resulting in an excess of fish that compete heavily for a scarce food supply.

Species Summary for Colossoma macropomum Tambaqui
This species is usually solitary. Adults stay in flooded forests during first 5 months of flooding and consume but fruits and grains. Young and juveniles live in black waters of flood plains until their sexual maturity. Feeds on zooplankton, insects, snails and decaying plants (Ref. 32894). Used in aquaculture because it can live in mineral poor waters and is very resistant to diseases.

Species Summary for Colossoma macropomum Tambaqui

The Tasmanian Giant Freshwater Lobster Astacopsis gouldi is the largest freshwater invertebrate on Earth. There have been recorded specimens reaching more than 5 kilograms (12 pounds) in weight and over 80 cm ( 2 feet 8 inches) in length. Anecdotal evidence has recorded a specimen reaching more than 6 kilograms (14 pounds) which is probably true but unfortunately any concrete evidence has been lost.

The family of duckweeds (botanically, the Lemnaceae) are the smallest flowering plants. These plants grow floating in still or slow-moving fresh water around the globe, except in the coldest regions. The growth of these high-protein plants can be extremely rapid. Lemna is one of the best known of this group and has been the subject of much research.
