Blue Tilapia Fingerlings

Blue Tilapia are considered to be a very good all purpose tilapia. They grow fast (second only to Niles), produce excellent tasting fillets and are known to tolerate colder water temperatures than many other tilapia strains. They are often selected by those who live in cooler climates, due to their ability to tolerate short periods of extremely low water temperatures as adults (down to 45 degrees F).

Blue Tilapia (Oreochromis Aureus)

Blue Tilapia are considered to be a very good all purpose tilapia. They grow fast (second only to Niles), produce excellent tasting fillets and are known to tolerate colder water temperatures than many other tilapia strains. They are often selected by those who live in cooler climates, due to their ability to tolerate short periods of extremely low water temperatures as adults (down to 45 degrees F).

Blue tilapia are omnivores but have a strong herbivorous tendency, preferring aquatic plants and algae when readily available. Because of this trait, Blue Tilapia are often a top choice for those wishing to stock tilapia in earth basin ponds, in states/areas they are allowed. They are highly effective at controlling nuisance aquatic plants, and due to their extremely high fecundity (reproduction rate), also provide exceptional forage for predator fish like largemouth bass when stocked in fishing ponds. Many pond owners seeking to produce trophy bass stock blue tilapia annually as part of their trophy bass management plan. Blue Tilapia are also an excellent selection for aquaponics and backyard aquaculture systems. They are a very forgiving fish when it comes to less than ideal water quality parameters and temperature extremes.

Our Blue Tilapia are GMO and hormone FREE. We ship mixed sex fish, so you will get a roughly 50/50 mix of males and females.

Healthy fast growing fingerlingsReview by David

Bought some blue and some white Nile fingerlings about 6 weeks back. There were only a few floaters at time of delivery and all the others settled in quickly and most have been growing well. There are a couple that haven't grown much but guess that is to be expected. The whites on average seem to have grown more than the blue. (Posted on 8/8/14)

Great Fish! Review by Cecil

I ordered 200 and was amazed at how small the box was! Anyway the fish arrived all live and are doing well. I placed them in a tank with larger bluegills and after a few weeks they have tripled in size and are quickly catching up with the bluegills.

Good product, good service, and good results! (Posted on 6/14/14)

I have been very pleased with the blue tilapia that I purchased a few weeks ago. They have survived with no fish turning belly up on me. They have also been growing very well. Some are over 4 inches now from fingerlings when they arrived just a few weeks ago. I will be buying more from AA. (Posted on 5/18/14)
Best Price/ Healthy FishReview by Kimberly

The fish were packaged well. Delivery time said 10:30 am. They didn't arrive until 3:30. I was concerned but the fish were very healthy looking. I have to say I was concerned about the price and getting what I paid for ( a place 2 hours away sells the same for 2.99 a fish.) I was so wrong!! I only had 5 doa which had ample replacements already in the bag. I honestly couldn't be happier with my purchase. It's been a week and the fish are doing wonderfully. If I ever need more I will be buying from here. I will also recommend this company to anyone who wants to purchase Tilapia! Thank you! (Posted on 5/9/14)

Spring orders take a bit longer for shipping and processing, but the fish are worth the wait. The fish were larger than I expected and all fish survived shipping intact and healthy. They acclimated easily and I am pleased with my order. I would order again if I need more fish. (Posted on 4/11/14)

100% survival rateReview by Nborland

Ordered 50, got 64... and 100% survival rate! Couldn't be happier. I tried out a different outfit thinking I could save a few bucks before going with Allied Aqua. The other place claimed to be a "real hatchery" who offered free shipping, and I got screwed by them. The fish were shipped USPS Priority, took 3 days to get to me and were all dead when they finally did arrive. Had to fight back and forth with them to get replacement fish or a refund, and I'm still fighting with them about it. That experience really soured me on trying to get fish shipped to me, but after talking to Allied Aqua for about a week, I decided to give it another shot. Unlike the other place, Allied Aqua shipped me perfectly healthy fish by Fedex overnight air, gave me more than I ordered and had 100% survival rate. On top of that, someone from Allied Aqua called me after they arrived and made sure everything was good with the fish and asked me if I had any questions. Now that's great customer service. You've won a customer for life Allied Aqua! (Posted on 3/8/14)
