Tilapia in Mississippi

Profit

If you want to be a "player" in the tilapia industry in the United States, potential producers should attempt to build a facility that should produce about 1/2 million pounds per year. However, if the tilapia enterprise is to provide only supplemental income then 100,000 to 250,000 pounds can be cultured.
