In California, tilapia may only be cultured in southern portion of the state, unless the Fish and Game Commission grant special permission. We recommend that you check with your CDFG Regional Office to determine what species of tilapia and where they are allowed. Go the
California Department of Fish and Game
web site and refer to Regional Offices to access your CDFG Regional Office for this information.
