I am the hatchery manager for White Brook Tilapia Farm based in the Kansas City, MO area. White Brook provides tilapia fry and fingerlings to aquaponics growers, aquaculture operations, pond owners, educational institutions and research facilities. White Brook also provides many other fish species on a seasonal "as available" basis.

I have been involved with aquaculture and aquaponics since 1996. My primary focus has been on fish genetics. I co-founded White Brook in 2000. Today, the company is the leading provider of pure, named strain tilapia in the United States. We employ sophisticated and leading edge management and tracking techniques in our hatchery. As a result, we see consistent and continuous improvements in our strains with each successive generation.

Ahhh.....Just figured out who you are. I just bought some tilapia from you guys about a month ago. Came by and picked em up myself. They're growing bigger...... Are you the same owners as premium fish food co.?
