Tilapia is one of the fastest growing aquaculture species in the world due to its biology (which makes it easy to produce), mild flavour and ease of preparation. This has led to tilapia being produced in all continents and more countries than most other farmed species and to rapidly expand from markets supplying the poorest communities in developing countries to premium markets in developed countries. However, despite now being such an established product, the rapid development of tilapia production and worldwide markets are still relatively poorly understood. This study investigates the development of tilapia in local and international markets and the interaction between different tilapia markets. The development of tilapia in international markets is investigated by studying the US tilapia market, the world's largest importer.
