Tilapia (til ah pe ah), is the second most important group of farmed fish after carp and the most widely grown of any farmed fish on the planet. It is farmed in at least 85 countries, with most imports coming from Asia (China and Indonesia) and Latin America (Honduras, Ecuador and Costa Rica).

The global supply of farmed tilapia surged in the 1990s and early 2000s, largely due to the widespread introduction of improved tilapia breeds, increased feed availability, the effective management of reproduction through sex reversal and hybridization, and expansion of consumer markets throughout the world.
