Saw this, never did think many store bought fish were very good.

Small scale farming started up to feed mostly one's self and family has always given an advantage, even if it cost more per volume of production.

4. Low Omega-3 to Omega-6 Ratios

From your link - be aware that this is the result of the food you feed the fish, not the species or origin.  How can we raise the Omega 3 levels in our farmed fish?  Aquaponics fish are farmed fish.  In general, I agree with the gist of the article and do not eat imported tilapia.  Some of the farming practices are nasty.

You may have to grow your own food for sup-lamenting the fish in a separate tank/pond or be careful what you buy for them, but small scale operations should be better quality anyway, just like growing a garden, you know what you put into what you eat.

Yes, I'm all for growing good food.  I don't know of a commercial fish food that might raise Omega 3 and I also don't know of anything I can produce at home that will raise Omega 3 levels in fish.  If anyone does know, please respond.

Only things I know are their natural food sources, algae and such, you can get for example Blue-Green Kalamath Lake Algae Powder from a healthfood store and add a spoonful to the tank or pond with the tilapia, it will build up in the grow beds and maybe slow plant growth there down for a while but will build rich humus to aid in growth later on. The algae will continue to grow in the water as long as it doesn't all get eaten or have something kill it.
