Product availability- Tilapia

Posted Sun August 16, 2009 8:36 pm, by Mickey P. written to Costco Companies, Inc.

Write a Letter to this Company

We love(d) the selection of single serve frozen white fish that used to be carried. Cod or tilapia would come home with us every trip. Lately, neither (short of buying it pre-breaded) is available. Is this a seasonal choice- can we expect to see it again later? Can you point us to an alternative? We really don't want the carbs associated with breaded fish, and we enjoy trying different seasonings and preparations with these two hardy, non-"fishy" white fish. We also love that Tilapia are young fish (not a lot of pollutant bioaccumulation or top end preditor impact) that can be farm raised (helps prevent overfishing). Not just tasty, but more environmentally correct than incorrect.

If you eat a lot of Tilapia, you might want to learn a little bit

Take it all with a grain of salt by Applejacker Tue August 18, 2009 @ 12:16 PM

I have no opinion one way or the other by Venice Tue August 18, 2009 @ 4:27 PM

I don't think farm-raised fish (which IS how tilapia is raised in the
U.S.) would have "seasons," would it?

Availability of frozen talapia varies, and is often driven by both
pricing and manufacturing availablity. Look towards Costco's fresh
fish department. It is FRESH, not frozen, and regularly available
there at only about $5 /lb. You can cook it fresh or freeze it
yourself if you like. That's what I do!
It's great with Costco's "Sweet Mesquite Seasoning" in their spice
isle, and great with their "Mango Salsa" too!
