Product Description:
Black Tilapia, scientifically known as Oreochromis niloticus, is a lean fish renowned for its firm, flaky texture and sweet taste. It grows faster than its red counterpart and is primarily used for processed fillets. China, being the world's largest producer of tilapia, contributes significantly to its global availability, with provinces like Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi, Yunnan, and Fujian being the major farming regions. The extensive infrastructure, government support, vast resources, and a well-established domestic market in China have played a pivotal role in making it the top tilapia producer and supplier, especially to the United States.

Black Tilapia is a nutritious choice, high in protein and low in fat, calories, sodium, and saturated fat. It is rich in:
- Vitamin B12: Essential for DNA synthesis and red blood cell production.

It is an ideal option for those aiming for weight management and a balanced diet.

Cooking Suggestions:
Black Tilapia can be enjoyed blackened:
- Dust the fillets with a spice rub, melt butter in a skillet, and cook the fillets for about two minutes on each side until the spices turn a deep burgundy color and the fish is cooked through.
- It pairs well with cornbread, rice, or hush puppies along with a vegetable.
- The fish is done when it flakes easily and loses its translucent appearance, typically at an internal temperature of 140–145 degrees.
