Tilapia: The fish world's true 'Valentino'
MetadataShow full item record
“The true Valentino fish is tilapia.” And not to be disputed, Dr. Westley Rosario, chief of BFAR-National Integrated Technology Fisheries Development Center, here, explained why this is so. Rosario described that a tilapia attains sexual maturity in 3 to 4 months and during this stage the males are bulkier. Their color changes from dark to almost black. The edges of the fins become red, while the throat-abdomen area turns yellow.
