Marketability of tilapia in Metro Manila
The Nile tilapia (Tilapia nilotica) is now accepted in Metro Manila market. The past ten years have shown an increasing trend in the marketability of tilapia. From a price of P5.00 per kilo in 1976, tilapia is now selling at P15.00 per kilo, more or less. The volume of production of this particular fish has increased during the last ten years. The increase in price and volume is very indicative of the acceptability of tilapia in the market. There is no doubt that this fish, when properly cultured, is now considered a quality fish, like milkfish.
