About Nile Perch

Many fresh and saltwater fish are mistakenly called perch. True perch are exclusively fresh water fish. In the United States, Walleye and Yellow Perch are popular in the North Eastern states and Great Lakes Region. Nile Perch is a farmed fish from Lake Victoria in Africa, and is air shipped to the United States. Similar to Tilapia, they are very easy to breed. Recently introduced here, Nile Perch has filled a demand for mild white fish, as consumer's appetites for more common species such as flounder and cod wanes.
