The 'molmol tilapia'- a food fish
MetadataShow full item record
The so-called "molmol tilapia," reported to be a fishpond "pest" in Pangasinan and the coastal provinces of Manila Bay, is actually the "blackchin tilapia" (BCT) from West Africa where it is regarded as a food fish. Scientifically known as Sarotherodon melanotheron, the species was introduced as aquarium fish in the country and is believed to have "escaped" into the wild. It was first found in Laguna de Bay in 2008.
