Great tasting tilapia begins with a pure water source
At Rainforest Tilapia we boast some of the best tilapia stock in the world. Costa Rica’s immaculate natural environment combined with Oreochromis Niloticus, our choice Tilapia breed, creates a mild, pure flavor and thick, hearty fillets that stand fins and tails above the rest. Before each pond harvest, the fish are analyzed and taste-tested to assure the characteristic flavor clarity that makes Rainforest tilapia so exemplary, and thanks to our Genetic Improvement Program, only the best broodstock of Oreochromis are selected from each generation to breed, meaning the highest quality fish will always be sent to you.
To inhibit the female fish’s reproductive system for the faster growth, almost all tilapia growers add a hormone to the feed at a very early stage. Because our talented aquaculturists separate the male and female tilapia by hand before the impulse to start reproducing appears,
WE DON’T NEED ANY HORMONES - NOR ANTIBIOTIC OR CHEMICALS OF ANY KIND. EVER.
We can trace the entire life history of each fish in our care from farm, to processing plant, to market -- seven generations back! Rainforest is unique amongst tilapia productions in that we own every step and stage of the production cycle. That means total quality control at every stage of a fish’s life, or Total Traceability, from farm to plate. Cook easy, knowing that each Rainforest fish is of the highest quality, purity, and flavor, every filet, every time.
