TILAPIA sp.




TILAPIA sp.

This fish (single specimen owned) has been got by mistake (!) while searching for Fossorochromis rostratus (at the “Cottage”, near Monkey Bay) is, to my best knowledge, a Tilapia sp., locally known as “Chambo”. It attains a total lenght of (it’s said) about 17 cm and it’s main, local, use is … FOOD!!! As a matter of fact we also, during our stay at lake, ate them! Must add they tasted great but, of course, I will NOT eat him once grown up. Wild caught fish from my 1999 trip to Lake Malawi (comments and photo by Francesco Zezza)
