No tilapia don't fit the criteria for that but they consume copious amounts of vegetation which builds up the nasties in them.

When I first came to Florida I was surprised by the advisories. They were telling you not to eat such and such fish from such and such area more that this and that many times a month. Kind of spooked me and that is why I don't eat a fish that I catch.

Sorry guys. Just refound this.

In answer to a couple of questions.

1. They like us to kill them a dispose if them either in the rubbish or burying them above high water.

2. The only reason they don't want us to eat them that i can see, is that they dont want the small ones put released. There is farmed tilapia available in the asian supermarkets.

Maybe for health reasons.  My cardiologist told me to never eat tilapia. Its diet makes it about the only fish full of bad fats/amino acids, and devoid of the good fats/amino acids.  They are the scurge of my homewaters.  Over populated, they have over nutriated the water, forced bass off prime bedding areas since they spawn 5 times a year!  I haven't seen a crappie or bluegill in years.  All displaced.  The landlocked tarpon and snook don't target them at all.  All thanks to a state biologist who with his doctor's degree still couldn't tell a tilapia from a Nile Perch and stocked them foolishly into Fl. waters.
